I believe the latest Versions of Photoshop have a 200% option.

Thanks, Brian.. does that bleed into Light Room?
That doesn't sound too comfortable as it is a big jump.
Q goes, 100, 125, 150, 200, and XXL 250%

OK Good information

Gee whiz.,
I just did some googling and 8.1 windows is mentioned with an ability to cope with  a few what PS calls Hi Rez3200 x 1800.
The article (referencing W 8.1) gives a whole menu of things to adjust in windows to cope with higher resolution.... changing icon fonts, menu fonts, etc...  Seems like I just went through that
So I would like to see somewhere where they offer something.

Sorry, but  I have to spoil the party...
This "extra" feature (change in handling the drag-and-drop) is quite stupid.
It breaks my workflow and make is useless as to tool to print.
Believe my or not. For me Qimage is an excellent printing tool. To organise photos, to develop Raws or to edit photos there exists many other tools that do the job equal or even better. Maybe they are a bit more pricy. ok.
I use a dedicated Digital Asset Management tool (and Qimage is no DAM). Since the drag-and-drop functionally is spoiled, my printing workflow does not work anymore.
I do not want the folder opened in Qimage. I don't need the thumbnail building. I do not need these non-standard ratings.
I just want/need  that photos are passed to the queue by drag-and-drop.
So please rethink your change. It was not a good decision.
I will revert to an older version an see whether Qimage will become a usefull printing tool again.

Digital asset management (DAM) consists of management tasks and decisions surrounding the ingestion, annotation, cataloguing, storage, retrieval and distribution of digital assets.[1]

That's quote #1
A lot of mumbo jumbo.   
"Ingestion". I think that means taking in stuff and absorbing into the system.
"Annotation" I think that means naming or renaming the ingested information.
"Cataloguing"  That sounds a lot like putting in proper folders, and storing the folders and prints by category

So let's assume that you have no idea what you bought in Qimage/It seems that way.
You can keep DAM and when you need it, just right click in the thumbs, and tick Send to Editor.

Qimage does it all!   All three of the above categories.
That quote is From Wiki pedia in case you feel like reading the whole thing.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_asset_management

I have searched the web using google to find the "PRICE"  Can't find it. So must assume it is so costly that thy are ashamed.

Nevertheless, Mike is sweet guy. He fixed 111 for you so  people have a choice.

It is not "stupid", in fact very logical.
Regarding work flow, the old method for me was not as good as the new. I nearly always wanted the folder open, the normal way of using QU.

What is standard?  Huh As far as I know there's no such thing as standard ratings in any image program or database.  Roll Eyes
Also, thumb building is no big deal, it puts the image you are working on in context, unless one's folder structure is a mess.

Just installed 2016.110.  My hardware is Del XPS15 with 15inch monitor res 3840x2088.  The pixels are TINY, and on windows 8.1, setting the system magnification to 200% gives a useable effect - big enough to read, but sill get enough things on the screen side by side to be useful.
The UI changes in 2016.110 means that QI is also now useable on this PC at full res.
There remain one or two issues, most concerned with vertical headroom.  I have attached a screenshotwith the UI set at 200%.  I have one at 250% UI for comparison, but can't load it here because of size restriction..
  • The title bar seems to enlarge just enough to hold the Qimage version, but not the same size as other 'unskinned' windows - so the buttons to minimize, restore, maximize, close etc at the right hand end are still minute as a target for clicking.
  • The window which describes the skin and font in use clips the font at the top.
  • The window that describes the paper in the printer and its resolution is too small.
  • The window that displays the heading "Job Properties" is too small.
  • The description "[Template]" needs attention.

2016.110 is a great start.  Microsoft sure haven't made this easy!

Thanks for the feedback.  2016.111 should take care of those issues.  There was one more layer of Windows scaling that I had to turn off: Windows was still scaling a few things that I had already scaled.

Well I am so happy to have QU back on my 4k monitors 4 total (not all at 4k)! I just have one more request Mike. The upper right hand corner the minimize - full screen - or close x is so tiny I can't hardly see it so I have trouble with closing QU in minimizing it. I use a scaling option of 225 so with your new improvements and using the large UI size all else is great! Can you help me again?
