    To get the UI scaled properly we need multipage tiff files to allow “proper” scaling of the pictorial UI elements..
    Searching through the AC libraries the multipage tiffs contain 3 pages where 0 is not scaled – and the others are 200% and 300%.
    Those 3 work quite well – but did anyone try with different scaling/more pages? (and is it giving anything when non-obvious scales are used)

    Another thing – what tools do You use for creating the multipage tiffs? Currently I use Affinity Designer ->export 3 scales and then combine them with imagemagick
    I think it could be done more automatical way.. anyone has something good for that?

    If you create the images in svg format, put them in a folder, LP_XMLConverter convertlibrary -excludesvg <folder> <tifffolder> converts them.
    There is one limitation: it converts text with a default font, and gives a warning. Explode text in the svg editor.

    I searched for that in LP_XML tool manual and could not find…:)

    BTW If searching reliable tool for splitting and merging tiffs then there are few commandline image magick goods for that:

    I added for right click over tiff file(winddows):
    “C:\Program Files\_ImageMagick_folder_\magick.exe” convert “%1” -set filename:f “%%[t]_%%[fx:t+1]” +adjoin “%%[filename:f].tif”

    for joining files put in the folder I made right click option to join tiffs from there into one outside that directory
    (unfortunately I could not figure it out to do without bat file creation)
    so right click goes to: “_path_to_custom_file_\joinTiff.bat” “%1”

    and this bat file contains:
    “C:\Program Files\_ImageMagick_folder_\magick.exe” convert %1\*.tiff %1.tiff

    I needed also this option for pure bitmaps…and making one overscaled jpg does not work if there are elemenets that need to be crisp ;(

    I made the same right click entry for the svg 2 tiff

    it points to a bat file containing:

    “C:\Program Files\GRAPHISOFT\LibDev Toolkit 22 (3013)\Tool\WIN\LP_XMLConverter” convertlibrary -excludesvg %1 %1_tif

    it works on right click on folder and creates a folder (at the same level) with the same name +”_tif” containing the tiffs made out of svgs
