    109We try to synchronize the DPI from the client to the server, so that applications will render with the correct settings and "look right" on the client.
     10This may affect fonts, window sizes, cursors sizes, etc.

    1212Caveats:
    13 * DPI support is much improved in version 0.16. With previous versions, your mileage may vary
    14 * with X11, there are far too many places where the DPI can be looked up, many places where it can be overriden - it is hard to get right
     13* support varies greatly depending on the operating system and version, desktop environment, number of monitors attached and their resolution, etc
     14* DPI support is much improved in version 0.16
     15* with X11, there are far too many places where the DPI can be looked up, many places where it can be overriden
    1516* for virtualized "hardware DPI" which some applications calculate from the virtual monitor dimensions, you will need a patched [/wiki/Xdummy] driver and [/wiki/FakeXinerama]
    1617* many applications will not reload the DPI settings, so they must be started ''after'' the client connects to get the correct DPI value
