Setting AppleDisplayScaleFactor for single applications
Authored by: gabester on Mar 22, '11 08:14:01AM
Thank you for bringing this information up again... I haven't played with this any lately but the tip about Mail is invaluable. I tried it with Entourage as well... I'm a miser about my screen real estate.

There is a little bit of flicker when the window redraws as it's dragging... but I can deal with that if Entourage takes up less than 1/4 of my 1280x800 screen. I also just noticed that, at least in Entourage, some of the buttons I have to click a little to the right of where they are drawn on the screen to activate them. So it's not perfect, and this is clearly why Apple hasn't implemented resolution independence - it doesn't work seemlessly enough given the state of most apps to provide a good user experience. However, for those of us on mosxhints who like to live on the bleeding edge, it serves its purpose. g=
