Menu Font Issue on New PC


Paul AC9O
 

I know this has been addressed before, but I don't see a solution.

I have upgraded to a new PC and when setting up the fonts, I was able to change most of them as I like.

However, the menu fonts and some other messages (like where the QRZ and LoTW messages come out) are too big and are cut off.

I tried the reset to default, and went into Windows setting and couldn't find anything that worked.

Hope you have found a solution. Sorry if I didn't find one already out there.

Thank you and 73
Paul, AC9O

Hi Paul,

Thanks for your e-mail.  In your Windows display settings, set your Scale & Layout font display to 100%:

That should do the trick.

Enjoy!

Thanks for the quick response Scott.

It's already at that setting. I tried changing it and then back again and it didn't make a difference.

Also, I noticed that when I resize the window vertically, it cuts off the bottom of text in those areas.

Note that I don't use it full screen as I have a very large monitor. If I reset it, then it's MONSTER size!

73 and Happy Thanksgiving.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for your follow up.  I didn't realize you weren't running AC Log full screen.  Click Settings > Appearance > Form Size and enter a smaller percentage.  You can still drag the edges after doing so for additional resizing to your preference, but starting with a smaller percentage to begin with will get you more in the ball park.

Enjoy!

Thanks Scott, that made it work much nicer. I didn't even know about that setting.

It doesn't seem to have any effect on some sub-windows, like the LoTW, Awards, etc. Those still come out full screen.

Not an issue, just an observation.

Thanks and 73,
