Eclipse on a hight resolution screen

Problem

Nowadays we have a screen with a resolution of 2560×1440 or 3440×1440 4K. The problem with Eclipse is, that all the icons and buttons stay very tiny and are hard to interact with.

Solution

The easiest solution is to adjust the eclipse.ini or STS.ini with the following parameters at the end:

Fixed 200% scale

-Dswt.autoScale=200
-Dswt.autoScale.method=nearest

Autoscale based on screen resolution

-Dswt.autoScale=quarter
-Dswt.autoScale.method=nearest
