UI fonts are rendered too small on laptop retina displays with native resolution greater than 220 ppi (see screenshot 1, red boxes). Font rendering within document area is ok, because these fonts have to be rendered at their physical extent and independent from display resolution. For better readability UI font rendering should be like in screenshot 2, red boxes with larger fonts similar to font rendering on external displays.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open any LO application like Writer, Calc, Impress, Draw
2. Look at statusbar or sidebar
UI fonts are rendered too small on displays with native resolution greater than 220 ppi (see screenshot 1, red boxes).
UI fonts should be rendered larger and as large as on external displays or on displays with native resolution less or equal than 220 ppi (see screenshot 2, red boxese).
User Profile Reset: No
I will provide a patch resulting in screenshot 2 in short.
Reason is VCL font handling for UI fonts using integer values in points (pt). Due to a rounding issue, fonts are rendered using a smaller height after recalculation of font height for display resolution.

Reasonable, but hope we don't have a repeat of bug 127066, but probably not since in the interim the inputlince has been welded.
