Pixel Doubling / HiDPI display support for BurpSuite

Running BurpSuite on a HiDPI display, and that makes the interface window tiny and unreadable?

Just set the _JAVA_OPTIONS environment variable so that it includes -Dsun.java2d.uiScale=2

On Linux, you can edit the BurpSuiteCommunity executable shell script wherever it's been installed, to include the following line near the top (below the #! line, though!):

export _JAVA_OPTIONS="-Dsun.java2d.uiScale=2"

You can change 2, which will give you double the UI size, to other values (e.g. 3 will get you triple the UI size).
