algorithmic modeling for Rhino


I have just installed Grasshopper in Windows 8 running on a Macbook Pro Retina Display and the icons are extremely small, really tiny to the point of making the software very tiring to use. Is there any way to enlarge them? I have never encountered this problem--just switched to Mac--and I cannot find any sizing options.  Any help is appreciated!

Thank you.

Hi Sergio,

there are no sizing options. I'm afraid you're stuck with this.

Thank you for the response, David. That's a shame; is it possible to suggest this issue as something to be addressed in future versions?

Oh, David!
Icons are right on cue!

On my wishlist are vector icons for components. I mean, you often have to zoom a lot which will make the icons look horrible.

I know, this is like First World Problems, but the Cherry Picker shows: it is possible. Will it?


Try to reduce the screen resolution if you have a 13 inch you have 2560-by-1600

if you have a 15 inch you have 2560-by-1600,

1920x 1080 (13inch) should be fine or 1920 x 1200 (15inch) depends on wich model you have.

Thank you for the response, David. I will try this out!

Hello, I have the same problem...

any improvement in this question so far?

none so far. I have compromised my soul and set the resolution of my soul and set my QHD+ capable Dell M3800 to 1920 x 1080 becasue of the Rhino and GH issues

Even Windows 8 is not really capable of handling QHD+.. Windows 10 will be the first supporting such resolutions.


same solution, same feeling...

Same issue with me, seems to be fine for 32bit version of rhino, yes, I know this Doenst make sense but it's true

I just bought a new laptop with a 2160p screen. What I've done is to follow this:

This way I can keep the resolution in Windows to the native pixel size for software that support high DPI screens, and only Rhino 5 is scaled x2 looking exactly as in my previous 1080p laptop.

I'm not applying this fix to Rhino 6 as it does support high DPI (and maybe at some point I might want to look at a high res Grasshopper canvas despite the tiny toolbars and unaligned, cropped text).

Rhino 6 and Rhino 5 side by side in the same screen set at 2160p:
