Lightroom Classic: 8k display and LR

I have been using Dell UP3218K monitor with 7680 x 4320 resolution for some months already.

With LR I’d like to propose two improvements that would make my work easier.

 

1. With previous monitor (Dell U2711 2560 x 1440) it was possible by clicking on edited photo to get magnified view as it showed the real shot pixel to screen pixel conversion. Now my picture gets usually smaller, as the pixel fit fills smaller space. There should be a possibility to change the pixel-to-pixel conversion to magnified view. Maybe I should use 2 screens as I anyway have another display for mail, social networking and googling. This should be seen somewhere as suggestion for users like me.
2. When I am changing the angle in develop screen -crop display, the grid is too dense and prevents adjustment (7680 x 4320 display only), Do something about it, like look on 8k display yourself

To be effective for human use instead of just a marketing bullet, an 8K display needs to be about 55". You can play with Windows Scale setting but any change from the default will probably result in worse problems in other areas. Even the HP 5K display that I fought with for a couple years could never be setup to give acceptable results. 5K needs about 40". 

 

You didn't say but I'd guess that you are on Windows. Macs do a better job of scaling but I certainly wouldn't switch just for the display. 

 

At least you have a collectors item, perhaps someday it will hang in the Smithsonian side by side with my 5K?

:}) I not discussing my TV-set (yet).  

It is actually a simple question. There are 8k monitors available. How to get Adobe to work with them in a reasonable way.

@bill_3305731 your continued dismissal of Hi-DPI and Retina displays seems like quite an uphill battle to me. Nothing of what you say will change the fact that they a) exist b) people like them and use them and c) their market share will only increase.

On the system level, both Windows 10 and Mac OS X are great with Hi DPI/Retina displays. The only relevant point here is that Adobe has not adapted their software better to them yet.

Somewhat related: my idea to set a (higher) Default Zoom Level for Retina/Hi DPI displays.
