Hello,

I just installed memoQ to a new computer and I feel uncomfortable with the look I see on my new computer.
Please see the attached picture. For some reason segment height is not enough and I can't see the percentage number very well.

How can make the segment height bigger?
Of course I checked Options > Appearance and changed font size to 12 (actually the font size of the memoQ I was using in my old computer was set to 10) but no change...

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Akiko

Scaling Dec 10, 2019

You are probably using scaling of your Windows screen. The MemoQ developers haven't quite figured out how to handle that yet, which is a problem when you buy a high-resolution screen.

I reported the problem to MemoQ support last year, so they are aware of it.

Thank you so much! Amazing! Dec 10, 2019

Thomas,

I do remember you helped me for other issue as well in the past.
Thank you again for your help.

It's now showing comfortably. Many thanks. I tried Translation grid score font size as 100% because 75% was a bit small and it still worked!
