What I find with MT4 is that when you set an objects property, it automatically becomes the default for that type of object.

Say, for example that you add a text label to the chart and the text is too small. Double click on it and open properties, change the font size to something that you can easily read.

Next time that you add a text label, the font size will be the same as you previously changed to.

It is the same with trendline widths etc

I think you misunderstood the OP, he is talking about MT4 user interface : My MT4 is not using the DPI settings of windows showing tiny fonts

yes the problem is with the Application interface not aware of DPI settings under windows display settings whereas MT-5 is fully functional and working fine like MT4 dpi is 100% windows dpi is 150% it makes everything small enough to see it is killing my eyes I want it to use 150% dpi so it can show larger

Show us the differences. MT4 vs MT5.

MT4 uses the Windows default of 96DPI settings, and hopefully it stays that way.

Most users (close to 100% of Windows users) do not change their DPI. If you have a big monitor then less reason to change it, no?

Changing to allow a different DPI will likely open a huge can of worms, especially with object positioning set by EAs, Indicators, and so on.

I sure hope this doesn't change. I have not one, but two big monitors and 96DPI works great!
