I wonder if someone has a suggestion on the following:

I have a 4K 28" monitor with a recommended resolution of 3840 x 2160. As the screen font then becomes rather small, I have set it to 200% to improve the readability.

The problem I have, is that Studio 2015 doesn't seem to follow the Windows font here. Instead the font is very awkward on screen, like the following:

Does anyone have a good solution to this so that the font fits better to Studio?

Workarounds Sep 26, 2016

Hi Roy,

Have you tried the workarounds suggested in the article below?

http://kb.sdl.com/?article=4959&cid=23#tab:homeTab:crumb:7:artId:4959

The results aren't perfect, but much more readable.


Best,

Nora Díaz

Mac Sep 26, 2016

And since I'm guessing you're working on a Mac (and maybe parallels?) you might want to try this:

Thanks, but it seems there is no satisfying solution at this time. Oct 16, 2016

Thanks. I have tried the solution and it didn't really do what I wanted. I have made some more research, though, and apparently there is no really satisfying solution at this time.

But thanks for taking your time to try helping me.

Sorry, but I am working in Windows, but I can imagine that the same problem appears on a Mac.
I have seen others have problems with the resulution on the Mac.

Same issues here Oct 17, 2016

I'm having the same issues here, plus others that just started happening this afternoon after I updated my Studio.

Have you just updated your Studio too by any chance?
