Higher DPI settings make dialogs unusable

Recommended Posts


I was excited to read that Affinity Publisher beta became available. I immediately downloaded the beta to try it out and when I started the application my first issue immediately appears ;-)

My screen settings are 1920x1080 with a DPI setting of 175% otherwise the fonts are far too small for almost all applications. With these settings the New Document dialog is too big vertically so that the buttons are not visible! Please rearrange the dialog controls or add a scroll bar somehow. See the attached screenshot. Maybe this issue also applies to other dialogs?

Kind regards,

Hi Marcello

Our system requirements actually only support a scaling value of 150% at your monitor resolution I'm afraid. This can be found in the Publisher help. This should is lacking form the requirements on our website so I shall get this communicated to the relevant people to get this part updated

This may be of help and perhaps you won't need to go to 175%.

Although it mentions only Adobe programs, I use it successfully on others too (usually).
