Hi!

I have installed latest V5.20 Beta 12 on a 4K laptop but the DPI scaling is not working.
Text and icon is extremely small.
java jre is oracle jre1.8.0_211
OS is Linux Fedora 30

Here they suggested a switch but it not working any more.

Any ideas?

You could try putting the

-Dsun.java2d.uiScale=2.5

flag in the roomeqwizard.vmoptions file in the REW directory.

I just found this in the View menu, which I was able to read by installing on a machine with larger monitor. Problem solved. H.

-----original query-----


Hello -- I have the same problem under Windows 10 (1920 x 1080 laptop) and under Windows 7 (1920 x 1200). On both, the program and help file are not usable because of tiny font size. I tried the flag suggested for Fedora, and it doesn't work on my Windows machines.

I think some 20-yr-olds could read the screen OK but for a 70-yr-old like me, it's impossible. Is there solution under Windows?

Using 5.19 (I typically avoid betas).
