  1. For the Renderer preference, this is normal. The first entry "Default" is saying, use the default card, and then it includes the name of the current default card. This can change on portable devices, depending on whether you are connected to power etc. After that it explicitly lists the names of your cards, so you can force a card to be used, regardless of power state. But the double cards in the benchmark test is very interesting...
  2. Check out the benchmark thread for info on what other people are getting. With regards to WARP, it should never be faster than hardware. Don't forget, the renderer is only for displaying the document to the screen, so it doesn't really do much work.

  5. Hi @AiDon, the retail versions are hosted on locations throughout the world to increase download speeds. The betas are hosted in the US, so may not be as quick, depending on the connection. Hopefully in the future we can improve the beta locations too, but for now, this is an issue between your ISP and Amazon in the US I guess.
  6. @prof_b, interesting suggestion - we have the reverse available, copying SVG text and pasting into the application pastes an image.
  7. > however that sounds an awful lot like "user having to go in and configure some UI scale that is specific to each application". Yes - I thought that's what you were asking for 😉 > should we really be forced into reconfiguring our entire systems No. You just accept the default, recommended scale that is provided for you, by the system. No configuring required - that's what we're aiming for here. A user should not be required to start our application, find the options, and then tweak the appearance to get it to a satisfactory level. It should just work. My default stance is: If Application X does not scale it's user interface, according to the OS provided system setting, that is a bug in Application X. It should not become the burden of other applications who _do_ scale their user interface correctly, to provide work arounds of the OS setting. I'm happy for the feedback and suggestion to be made, and be discussed 🙂
  8. > Windows scales them forcefully into a double pixel size You can override this (or disable it completely) on a per-application basis by going to the Compatibility tab on the application shortcut's properties. More info is here - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/15078/windows-10-make-older-apps-or-programs-compatible
  9. OK - the "new from clipboard" part is probably the interesting bit here. I assume you can load a document normally etc? What happens when you create a new document, then paste into it?
  10. @walt.farrell are you on the latest drivers for your cards?
  11. Hi Hadrien, if it makes other programs render incorrectly, perhaps that's a bug report that you should raise with them? > This thing should be handled at the program level I disagree, I think there should be consistency across all applications on a user's system. Programs should "just work" without the user having to go in and configure some UI scale that is specific to each application. Especially considering that the recommend display scale is automatically selected for you by Windows when you connect a new device.
