I have a late 2013 Retina Macbook Pro which drives a Dell P2815Q 28" 4K monitor (at 30Hz). What I would like is to have scaled UI components whilst retaining the resolution of the monitor, rather than having to either:
- Use the full resolution with tiny fonts and UI components
- Use 1920x1080 scaled HiDPI mode, which doesn't provide enough screen space (although the text is lovely and clear).
The options I currently have for the external monitor are:
What I'd like is to be able to scale the display as I can for the Retina MBP screen:
I've found plenty of posts explaining how to enable all resolutions under the 'Scaled' tab. This is not the solution I'm after because it doesn't make the font/UI components smaller whilst retaining a crisp resolution.
