Hi Alessandro,

Do you mean the expanders on the file tree and the +/- on the source code folds?

The former comes from your theme via GTK, I don't think we have any
control over it.  Maybe GTK and KDE are having a disagreement over the
size to use.

The latter is generated by Scintilla.  There have been many fixes for
hidpi in the two years since the version of Scintilla used for 1.23.1
was released.  Any chance you could try the current git version,
perhaps using the nightly build?  One of the Debian builds should work
on Ubuntu, see http://nightly.geany.org/debian/.
