--- Comment #12 from Glen Whitney <gwhitneycom5 at pobox.com> ---
OK, well, testing various settings of GDK_SCALE and GDK_DPI_SCALE with `gnome-text-editor` (which is built with GTK4) and `shotwell` (still built with GTK3), it appears that GDK_DPI_SCALE has no effect under GTK4, and indeed, I cannot find any documentation of it or any api call that would seem to relate to it in the GTK4 docs.

On the other hand, it appears that the intended behavior under GTK3 is that GDK_DPI_SCALE should scale all fonts (but nothing else). So I will adjust the proposed patch to have that behavior, once the preliminary PR https://github.com/WebKit/WebKit/pull/26954 has been acted upon.

I have been using a HiDPI display for several years but I am definitely no GTK expert, so if the maintainers have anyone else to bounce this plan off of, it would be appreciated. But I _think_ I now have all of the relevant settings and what they should do clear in my head.
