Screen resolution changed in 1.3?

  • Hi all,


    after update to version 1.3... it seems that the screen resolutions changed.

    I created a lot of views which fit into the screen (display 1) without the need to scroll. After the update, everything looks bigger and my arrangements do not fit on the screen anymore. Also the view-bar on the right side is much bigger than before (less views are displayed now).

    the scale of that screen was "1" before and after the update.

    When I change to "0.75", then everything fits into the screen, but the text becomes unreadable...

    is there a way to change the resolution on a different way?

    (On Windows, the resolution was and is 1920x1080 ...


    I run "display 1" on an external Touchscreen Monitor

  • Each install of onPC is a separate program, so if you previously told Windows that onPC should use its own scaling, you have to set it on the new install as well. Here's an excerpt from this bulletin:


    ...First, however, you must make sure onPC is set to take care of its own scaling rather than also having Windows scaling muddying the waters:

    1. Close onPC
    2. Right-click on the desktop icon for onPC
    3. Go to {Properties} → {Compatibility} tab
    4. At the bottom, click on {Change high DPI settings}

    5. Check the box for {Override high DPI scaling behavior}
    6. Chose "Application" from the {Scaling performed by:} dropdown menu

    7. Press {Ok} / {Apply} to close out of those windows
    8. Re-open onPC
  • Hi,

    thanks for the fast reply. I did some more tests yesterday.

    1. I started the 1.3.1 version. "Configure Display" for "Display 1" shows me Width <17> and Height <7> and Scale 1x

    2. started version 1.2.0: "Configure Display" for "Display 1" shows me Width <22> and Height <10> and Scale 1x

    All with the same show and in the same user-profile. So definately something changed.


    I will try your recommendations this evening and will give feedback tomorrow...

    Strange thing is, that i never touched these settings on the desktop icon ... on none of the versions ..

  • So, did some more tests....

    started version 1.2. without checking {Override high DPI scaling behavior} --> width 22, height 10, scale 1

    started version 1.2. WITH checking {Override high DPI scaling behavior} --> width 17, height 7, scale 1

    So in Version 1.2. changing the settings does have results.



    started version 1.3.1 without checking {Override high DPI scaling behavior} --> width 17, height 7, scale 1

    started version 1.3.1 WITH checking {Override high DPI scaling behavior} --> width 17, height 7, scale 1

    So in version 1.3.1 changing the settings does NOT have results (only the text looks a little "sharper")
