Note that binaries will be available tomorrow, but source package and tag are already available.

The default zoom is very large in RC 2 release and v200
Win 64 font 150% on PC
Returned on v199

@ovas, are you using HiDPI screen?

An expected side effect of #1428. Note that you most likely manually set "default zoom" to some larger value in Preferences → Content → Zoom previously.

You could also try to "disable DPI scaling" in the shortcut properties.

Combined with a 100% zoom level on a website, does the program correctly scale to ~150% or does it go overboard to, for example, 200%?

I use this scale.
In v199 and others such a problem was not.

Right, but you presumably would've set the default webpage zoom to something higher than 100%. The difference is that in this case "100%" has taken on a slightly different meaning. The big question is whether at scaled 100% it's roughly correct (i.e., previous 150%) or basically wrong (e.g., previous 200%).

Is there a solution to this problem?
In earlier versions, this was not.

@ovas, AFAIK you can set environment variable to disable it, or wait for weekly 201 (Monday or Tuesday).

Yes, on Windows you can use this to trigger the weekly 200/RC2 behavior on any Otter build:

Code: [Select]
set QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR=1
otter-browser

And like this for the reverse:

Code: [Select]
set QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR=0
otter-browser

It might be possible to string it together in a shortcut without having to create a batch file or open a command prompt, but my CMD syntax knowledge is a little rusty. This might not work as written:

Code: [Select]
set QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR=0 & otter-browser

Another option would be something like this. This might not work as written either:

Code: [Select]
cmd /c "set QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR=0&&otter-browser"
