No issues with a small screen Oct 7

Hi Mohamed,

I've been using MemoQ 2015 and 8 on a 11 inch laptop screen for the last 1,5 years or so and didn't have any issues, it's all looking good to me.

One thing that I avoid, though, is using the preview feature. I just have the translation screen in the left 2/3 of the screen and then the TM on the right. Works alright for me.

Adjust your screen's resolution Oct 8

Since there is a size below which I think you would have trouble on a small screen (after all, the UI's clickable elements need a minimum space, as do dialogue boxes), you can try increasing the resolution of your screen. This will make the main UI items (menus, icons in the ribbon, etc.) smaller, but you can increase the size and font of the translation grid in order to work more comfortably.

You can increase the font size by choosing "Customize appearance" both in the translation grid and in the Translation results pane, and try different fonts and see which one works better for you.

I hope this helps a bit!
