    text in dialog boxes not fitting properly in media composer 8

    Hi,

    I'm having text in various dialog boxes being cut off; eg in the opening project window and others. The list opening window is also cut off at the bottom when I scroll not diplaying all the projects. Anybody out there with anything similiar happening with Windows 10? Had this problem to a certain extent with Windows 7 as well. Thanks-----

    Re: text in dialog boxes not fitting properly in media composer 8

    Hello mtrush,

        You might want to add details of your computer, a screenshoot might help too, BTW Windows 10 is not yet qualified for Media Composer.

     

     

    Good luck,

    Hi,

    make sure that in Windows settings the text display is at 100%. That solved the problem for me------

    Hello Tom,

    I'm having the exact same problem. I'm using MC 8.5.1. This only happens when I use it on my laptop (Display Resolution 3200x1800), when I use MC on my desktop (Display Resolution 1920x1080) I don't have that that problem. I tried to toggling ON and OFF the "Disable display scalling on high DPI settings" option but that didn't work either. Is there anyone in this forum that knows how to fix this?

    Re: text in dialog boxes not fitting properly in media composer 8

    I am also interested in understanding how people work with MC 8.x on high-DPI displays...

    I occasionally do editing on a Surface Pro 4 (2736 x 1824 - 267 PPI) but I switch to 1920 * 1200 before launching MC. Obviously this upscaling (1920*1200 on a 2736*1824 px display) at GPU level causes just a little tad of blurring.

    Has anyone better practices ?

    Re: text in dialog boxes not fitting properly in media composer 8

    Currently I believe that the only way to solve this issue is to do exactly what you're doing.

    Set your resolution to a much lower setting than the one recommended by your monitor. 

    In a different thread, it was mentioned that "Avid is working on this". Unlike every other NLE, which worked on this 5 years ago, and solved it.

    Sorry if I sound bitter. Avid has really been dropping the ball lately. The stagnation with Media Composer is palpable.
