  • Increased DPI value in Windows XP

    Hello,

    I realized that BC dialog boxes have inclomplete text in them because of my increased DPI object size on my computer (which is used to increase size of characters and icons on high-resolution monitors, where they would otherwise appear too small). I think the dialog boxes should be able to adapt to the size of their displayed message.

    As an example I enclose dialog box "File is write-protected." (in German), which appears upon attempt to edit write protected file. Normally there is also a question "Do you want to remove write protection?", which is now not visible due to increased font size. The same problem is in another dialog box announcing file change in external editor and prompting reload.

    The second enclosed image shows graphic options window in Windows XP, where increased DPI value can be set.

    The problem is also present in English version of BC.

        Hello,

        Thanks for the additional information. I haven't been able to repeat this yet with my own tests, but I will create a tracker entry to investigate this further. Are there any other Display Settings you may have customized in Windows?

          I was trying to reproduce the problem at home under Windows Vista and realized, that the dialog boxes were indeed complete. So it looks like this problem only occurs in Windows XP.

            Thanks. And a few minutes after I posted my findings I was able to reproduce it, so I've created a bug tracker to investigate further. Thanks for your help.
