Text Scaling Regressed

Postby NormC » Tue Aug 29, 2017 2:04 am

Hi Dan,

I'm sorry to report that with the new release that supports text scaling, many parts of the VueMinder main screen are now displayed using too large a font. The text scaling option does not affect these parts of the display. I display VueMinder as full screen.

For individual calendars I have adjusted the font size down to 7 points, which almost makes them as readable as they were in the previous release.

My setup: a 27" monitor with screen resolution set to it's recommended value of 2560x1440. I have Custom DPI set at 150%.. this worked well for almost all applications, including the previous release of VueMinder.

Dan, I originally found that there was no difference between Text Scaling enabled and disabled when only VueMinder was shutdown and restarted.

However, when Windows is restarted, Text Scaling does result in smaller fonts. see below

I was able to revert the calendar properties to a font size of 9. Now the issue on the main window is confined to the two small calendars on the left, truncated text for the list of calendars, and the text for Day, Week , Month, Year, Timeline, Today and Settings.

There was no change to the Task Calendar Properties window after reboot.

Many thanks for your support!

Hi NormC, thank you for the information. It appears this is a Windows 7 problem. I'm not seeing this behavior in Windows 10. I'll investigate further and I'll post a reply when a correction is available.

Thanks, Dan. Yes - I am running Windows 7. Too many issues when I attempted to move to Windows 10.
