I can't set image size to 3840x2160. If I type in 3840 in the x field, 2163 appears in the y field. What am I doing wrong? I use version 2.14.6.1.
I _can_ open an older saved fractal map of 3840x2160.

I'Ve had that too. Sometimes it can help if you just maximize the program to fullscreen, open/close the image size dialog and then "demaximize" again. (clicking the square button next to the x-close on top right of every windows program.
helped me sometimes but not everytime if I remember correctly.

Which reminds me of: why is imagesize still restricted/linked, only 16/9? I'd love to choose freely and for example do square-renders (would be more efficient for rotating videos as well). how about we get a check-box "16/9" to link them optionally?

The image size is locked to the window size aspect ratio.  Set window size to 640x360 or other exactly 16x9 aspect ratio to get 3840x2160.  I guess your window size was 1280x721?

You can set window size to eg 512x512 to get square images, but maybe you need to activate the View->Arbitrary Size check box for this, not sure (legacy code...).

Note: the window size stuff is tested on Linux in WINE (I have no Microsoft here), if you still can't get it working let me know your Windows version and I might be able to borrow an installation to test with.
