V9 Small dialogs on 4K monitor with 150% scaling

Post by mattb5906 »

The dialog text is tiny on a 4K monitor with 150% scaling. The main UI size is fine.

And on a 4K screen with 200% scaling, it's near as damn impossible to read...

Hi, I can't reproduce this on a 4K monitor. Are you using a Surface Pro? Thanks

Hi Mickyj - not in my case, I'm using an HP Envy 17 (Model ae101na)

By default in Windows 10 Pro, the "Settings > System > Display > Scale and layout > Change the size of text, apps and other items" is set to 200%.

Interesting. Yes, I'm using a Surface Pro 5 with it only displaying on an external 4K monitor.

Hi, we had someone have a scaling issue and the following fixed it:
Can you try the suggestions shown in the video and see if it helps:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pO4v_c6-hk0

Go to location where SyncBackPro is installed > right click on the executable > select 'Properties' from the pop-up menu > Compatibility tab > Change high DPI settings > tick 'Override high DPI scaling behavior' > select System (Enhanced) from the dropdown menu, save settings and see if it works?

If the problem persists, try with the other 2 options available in the dropdown menu and see if it helps?
Did it help? Thanks

Yes, it fixed in in my case - appreciate the help.

(Might be interesting to see what happens with Windows 10 1903 - isn't that meant to have enhanced high-dpi scaling capabilities?)
