Question Larger Panel size available?

I think I read about this at one time, but does release 3 of NSIS have an option for larger window panels during the install? I am getting comments now that panels are too small and hard to see especially the components panel. We would like to generate installs with more space in the window/frame/panel (what ever the container is called).

Are you using ManifestDPIAware? If you don't (or use "ManifestDPIAware false") then Windows should scale the window for you on High DPI displays.

The MUI component page also has a couple of defines you can set to reduce or remove the section description label which makes the list larger.

Or you can use custom GUI (MUI_UI) with Modern User Interface

Another alternative:

Before I switched to UltraModernUI (which I find to be a good size out of the box), I used the NsResize plug-in with Modern UI 2.

I like the NsResize plug-in. I been giving it a try. The components panel is having some trouble with the header image on the right side though. I am using these options, but it mangles my image so it is not recognizable.

!define MUI_HEADERIMAGE
!define MUI_HEADERIMAGE_BITMAP "top_hs.bmp"
!define MUI_HEADERIMAGE_RIGHT
!define MUI_HEADERIMAGE_BITMAP_NOSTRETCH

I'm just guessing; I don't know that it supports right-side images, but are you using the specific macros for each page in their show functions? (See the LargeWindow.nsi example.) e.g.:
code:
!define AddWidth 100u
!define AddHeight 75u
; ...
!define MUI_PAGE_CUSTOMFUNCTION_SHOW ComponentsPage_Show
!insertmacro MUI_PAGE_COMPONENTS
; ...
Function ComponentsPage_Show
${nsResize_ComponentsPage} ${AddWidth} ${AddHeight}
FunctionEnd
