[wingide-users] text size with new X11 2.3.2 on MacOS

Hello there,

the latest release of the X11 system for MacOS, 2.3.2 rc1, sets the  
default resolution to 96 dpi. As a result, the text in WingIDE becomes  
far too big. I have been using Luxi Mono 11 pt for the Python code and  
the actual text size on the screen corresponded roughly to 11 pt in  
native applications. However with that new version of X11, I need to  
use 8 pt to get the same actual size on the screen. I am sure this is  
a dpi problem because if I start the XServer with -dpi 72, text size  
gets back to what it used to be.

Is there anything Wing-specific which could explain that bad  
behaviour? Has anybody any suggestions as to what to do?
