Huawei Matebook X PRO
Resolution : 3000x2000
Scaling Factor: 200%
Ubuntu 18.10 (and 18.04)
My Question or Issue
The Spotify interface doesn't follow the scaling factor set in the Gnome Settings (200%). Everything is super small, as the rest of the desktop would appear at 100% scaling since the resolution is very high.
I think the problem is with Electron that is not correctly configured, and I found this Github topic for support: https://github.com/electron/electron/issues/615

also did the job. You often see
being written on here, but in fact that doesn't work (involves holding the shift key). So, counter-intuitively, the three keyboard shortcuts for zooming in Spotify for Linux are:
[CTRL]  to return to default zoom
[CTRL] [-] to zoom out
[CTRL] [=] to zoom in
These keyboard shortcuts, once used, should persistently affect the zoom level. As it turns out, the Spotify front-end is highly optimised for high-DPI screens; they just haven't placed a suitable option in the settings, which is crazy if you ask me because it's 2018 and everyone's buying high-DPI monitors now.
