GUI on Windows 10 cuts off certain values

Postby thorin33 » 08 Sep 2016, 21:45

I have been using this application for many years on a Win XP machine. I finally upgraded to a win 10 laptop and notice that the top (date) and bottom values (Total) seem to be cut off. Has anyone else seen this and is there a solution?

Hi thorin33,
I myself use Win10 and I haven't noticed any UI issues. Could you include a screenshot so I can review?

Thanks for the screenshot, thorin33.

The issue does not appear to be Windows 10 per se but rather the text size being set to greater than 100%. Here's an article on how this is set:

Could you confirm whether your text is set greater than the default?

I am indeed using a size of 150% (which is the recommended default for my laptop). When I change to 125% or 100%, the values are not cut off but the display size on the fonts and such are much too small on my 14" laptop. Not sure there is anything else I can do.

Glad we found the cause of the issue.

If you need the font size to be 150% then there is currently no solution for this issue. I can look at scaling the grid based on the text size in a future release.

That would be great. It is still very much usable and I'll deal.

Thanks
