    Tiny windows and overlapped text

    Hello everybody

    as I need to do a work abroad I need to get a mobile workstation and I went for a DELL Inspiron 15, 7000 series, choosing carefully the configuration as regards Avid requirements.

    I'm experiencing a very strange surprise: when I open MC the text is totally overlapped within the windows and everything is very very small, I can't even read and choose the options because of overlapping.

    The PC has a 4K resolution, but even changing to 1920x1080 it is still the same for Avid, but other softwares change.

    Anybody can please tell me what to do? I have to leave on friday and I should make it work by that day, hopefully.

    Thank you everybody.

    Lorenzo,

    MC (as of 8.5.x; I've not yet checked 8.6) does not support 4K monitors. This is documented. Unless you can change the resolution in the BIOS, it will note work at the moment.

    Hi Dave

    Thank you for your reply.  In the meanwhile I found out that if I change the resolution in the display settings and then reboot the PC, MC works fine. I can even set the resolution again to 4k and the loaded project won't change at all but other apps can work at 4k.  That's strange but at least it works. I hope these posts will be useful for all other users who don't want to give up a 4k screen.

    Thank you.
