MATLAB 2019b Simulink 4K Display scaling Linux

5 views (last 30 days)
It is very easy to scale MATLAB 2018b with the DisplayScaleFactor variable.This works very fine for nearly all systems and applications.
But since 2019b this variable is no longer working for simulink. Simulink is now redesigned and this variable has nolonger an effect on scaling of simulink.
The text and buttons are too small to read and work with them efficiently.
The allready known workarounds do not work.
My working system :
openSUSE Leap 15.1 64-bit with KDE
All updates for system and MATLAB installed

I have exact the same issue with MATLAB R2019b on Linux (Mint 19.3).

With 2020b this Problem is resolved! Upscaling using openSUSE 15.2 with KDE an 4K Monitors works as fine as with 2018b!
Thank you MATLAB Engineers

i have two versions of MATLAB. 2018b works fine and 2019b which does not.
Operating system is openSUSE Leap 15.1 with KDE 18.12.
My university only has the b Versions, so the next upgrade i can make would be 2020b.

I have a simulare issue on MATLAB 2020b but for a 1080p display and the interface is for me about 2 times bigger.
I'm on Linux too (Pop'OS 20.04 LTS) and the scale of my screen in the Gnome setting is 100%.
Thank you in advance to any one who may be able to give me some help.
