Interface Resolution

You could use scaleFactor to resize the IDE elements, such as:
	set the scalefactor of stack "revtools" to 2

If you type into the message box:
	put the stacks

you’ll get a list of the IDE stacks:
/Applications/LiveCode Business box/revmessagebox.8.rev

/Applications/LiveCode Business

/Applications/LiveCode Business

Having a script somewhere that sets the scaleFactor for each should do the trick.
