And all of your feature requests are implemented.
issue #1202 created a monster for a while though, until Refine Shape was added to Data Tab > Properties.

I hope you could fix your driver issue.
An inexpensive graphics card fixed that (updating the driver for my on-board graphics didn't help).

Hi,

I'm facing the samme issue now on my MBPro, and cannot find the marker size preference in v0.19 on MacOS X. The font size setting doesn't seem to affect the sizes.

annot find the marker size preference in v0.19 on MacOS X.
Preferences->Display->MarkerSize.

The size of the dimensions and symbols cannot be changed.

Is there something special you want to show us with the preferences screenshot?

Just that it's unreadably small, and I have pretty good eyes...
The text is about 1mm high on my MBP retina, and the constaints are even smaller.
It seems like the constraint text size can be changed (but it requires a freecad restart, although it doesn't say that it needs it) using Pref -> Sketcher -> Font size, changing from 17px to about 48px (!) makes it legible, but the icons and the numbers of the constraints stay the same.

I think Pref -> Display -> Marker size only changes the dots at the end of the lines, which is useful as well, but not what I am looking for right now.

Until you wrote that I was thinking that you wanted the vertices to be bigger. Now I understand what you want to enlarge:

Because screen displays evolve toward higher resolution, this would probably be a good feature request on the bug tracker.

Comments, anyone?

Good idea. And it is desirable in both directions. Hiding the symbols is not always desirable, sometimes I would still like to see them, but in a less cluttering size.

I agree: Being able to change the size of the graphics showing constraints onscreen would greatly benefit users with smaller 4K screens (like a workstation laptop).
