  • Font Does Not Fit if user has 125% or 150% selected

    I make basic Menu boxes for my DVDs and if a user has changed their desktop display settings to Medium (125%) or Larger (150%) to make the desktop easier to read, the font becomes to big and you only see part of it. The funny thing is the font inside the menu buttons is fine though. Any ideas to fix?

    I don't think there is a simple fix on this, I have been having problems with window size problems with that very same setting, I don't remember having these problems in 2000,XP and 7 but in 8 and 10 I had some problems.

      I am just a basic user, but I think this is going to be a big problem as people buy more 1440p and 4K monitors and need to increase the display size to read. I made a very basic menu real quick to show the problem I am having. From reading around, I think i have to somehow "disable display scaling on high DPI setting", but I don't see that option under fonts.

        Hi sycore
        I tried 5 of my AMS apps with Win 7,8.1 & 10 increasing and decreasing display magnification and could not replicate your problem
        I am using ams V8.5
        Are you using a standard font?Send sample apz & I will check if you wish
        Cheers

          I can confirm his bug colc, it does mess up with fonts and screen size, I don't think this is a bug with AMS tho I think it's how windows handles font sizes.

            Thanks for the response. It is Bank Gothic, but any font will do it if it gets big enough to not fit. Happens in all version of Windows if the user has their Display option set at 125% or 150% to make it easier to read. Change your display size by right clicking on the desktop and picking the Display option near the bottom. Then you can choose 125% or 150%. If you chose 150% which more people are doing because of 4K monitors, the font will be to big and get cut off.

              I think after AMS makes the autorun.exe I could try changing the properties of the exe and pick the Compatibility tap and check the "disable display scaling on high DPI setting" box. But I don't know if that would work and there should be some way of doing it in AMS before it creates the autorun.exe file.

                Well changing the properties of the autorun.exe file after it was created by AMS did not change anything. Maybe it is being handled by the autorun.cdd file? What is weird is the same font inside the buttons stays the same size no matter what DPI is chosen. There has to be a way to keep the font from scaling.

                  This is a strange one, I am moving in like 3 days but when I have moved I am sure to return to this I am watching it and also trying to think about a fix, you could use images for words rather then labels I guess little more work but it would stop the resizing via the scale of windows, but I not sure if we can create a option to not listen to windows scale option.

                    Thanks for your help. I have no idea when it comes to coding, but was reading the maybe you could use the dpiAware property to ignore the windows DPI scaling. Read it when you have time and see if you can understand it.

                      Does anyone know if dpiAware and dpiAwareness is something that can be used in AMS?

                        king - Did you get a chance to look over the dpiAware link?
