Affinity Publisher display seems to not all fit onto the screen


Recommended Posts

Some time ago I bought a 14 inch hp laptop from Currys. I am using it now.

Some time ago I installed three Affinity programs on it, but had not used them on this machine, though I had used them previously on a computer that had later broken down.

I use an 11 inch hp for everyday use for such things as ordering grocery deliveries. That one is Windows 10 S.

This one is Windows 10 as I have unlocked it so that I could use some software on it that cannot be loaded onto a computer running Windows 10 S. I had already got "non-S" licences for the Affinity products and I also wanted to be able to use some High-Logic software too.

Anyway, today, I decided to use Affinity Publisher, which is version 1.10.6.1665, to produce a document, with a view to producing a PDF document and placing it in the Share your work forum.

So, start Affinity Publisher, File, New, but the display seems to not all fit onto the screen, and, as far as I know, I cannot generate a new blank document.

Any ideas of how to fix this please?

Hi William, what is the screen resolution for your computer? Do you have scaling set to something greater than 100% in Windows Settings > Display?

Affinity's minimum screen resolution is 1280x768.

Also, can you provide a screenshot from Windows showing the screen that you see?

Yes, you have solved the problem for me. Thank you.

Scaling was set to 150% and I changed it to 100% and I could get a new document, but it looked small on the screen.

Screen resolution was at 1920 by 1080 Recommended, but I changed it to 1360 by 768 and it seems to look better with the menu bar having lettering easier for me to read.

Thanks again,

Best regards,

William
