Fonts on High Def Screens

★★★ Newbie

Are you EVER EVER EVER going to fix the Origin App for PC to function on larger high definition screens.  As it is now, I simply cannot see the top menu for the life of me unless I pick up my keyboard and walk about 8" from the screen.  Other text is also quite small, but better.  I can do compatibility changes to make the app work on high def screens, but the app always shows me the error informing me that it's running this way.  You've updated the app like 6 times since I last asked about this and you still haven't fixed this issue.  Every other app I run (Battle.net, nVidia apps, etc.) work fine, as well as apps like TukUi which updates addons for World of Warcraft (which only a couple of people manage).

 

As more and more people use larger and larger screens to play games, you NEED to keep up! Fix this font size issue please.

My Opinion is no more important or right than yours.I'm a gamer like you, trying to help you (i'm not an EA employee).
