I have just bought a new notebook with a UHD monitor. The title bars, menu bars and icons are tiny and virtually illegible. The floating windows (e.g. search/replace) are only 1/4 the size - top left hand quarter, the rest is cut off.

Trados has a similar problem and they have issued a solution using a manifest file ( to disable display scaling. I tried converting this for Transit with no luck. An email to Star has gone unanswered for 2 days, so I will try again by telephone. But in the meantime, does anyone have a solution to this problem?

I can only work with NXT on this notebook by docking the search window - which takes up too much space - and because I know where the buttons are (check with magnifier if I'm not sure).

I am surprised that this is still a problem because these screens have been around for over a year and software development is supposed to be forward-looking. Furthermore, they are becoming increasingly popular on notebooks. The screen resolution is excellent, with extremely sharp text rendering in Word, making my HD monitor look fuzzy in comparison.

Cheers to all,
