Topic:   Text size on large monitors

Hi All,

I'm trying to increase the text size for use on a large monitor, MiniMRP dose not seem to respond to increasing the text size in windows 10 when other app do, any other ways?

This worked for me. Right click on windows 10 desktop and select display properties.
see the option to "Change the size of text, apps and other items". Change to 125%

Although on my 4K display even 150% was a tad too small so I changed the resolution to 1920x1080 and left the fonts at 100%

That's what I tried, but then that messes my CAD program up, I was trying to adjust the text size of MiniMRP only.

Steve. Where are you trying to adjust the text size? In the desktop shortcut's compatibility features? or where?

Hi Support,

Yes, I have tried setting the DPI settings in the start icon, if I set the scale to 150% MiniMRP is great but what ever options I try it effects my whole system which messes up my CAD system.
Setting the overall windows setting to 125% is the best compromise I've found so far.
My monitor is 30" dell @ 2560 x 1600 resolution.

Steve. In your first post at the very top of this page you said that MiniMRP does not respond when other apps do. What other app? Where does that other app/apps have their font size option? Is it within the app itself or some setting in Windows that affects just that specific app?

In windows - setting - display - make text bigger MiniMRP does not respond.

In windows - setting - Make everything bigger MiniMRP does respond, but MniMRP needs to be 150% and my CAD system needs to be 125%

I cant find away of setting them independently, its a Windows issue really, but thanks for looking.

We'll take a look at font settings within MiniMRP.

That would be great.

Steve. Do you want to email us so we know who you are. I'd like to send you an update to test with your Monitor to see if it scales in a way that's compatible with your cad system.
