The ribbon menu appears huge on external monitor.

Post by sjleejf » Thu Sep 19, 2019 1:38 pm

Hi folks,

As you can see in the attached photo, the ribbon menu of PDF-XChange Editor appears mighty huge on my external monitor.

This must be some kind of scaling issue.

But the weird thing is, PDF-XChange Editor is the only program that behaves like this.

My notebook is 3840 x 2160, and my monitor is 1920 x 1080.

Any idea on how to solve this? Thanks!!

Hello sjleejf,

Yes - this definitely looks like a scaling issue.
Please try to set this option in the Editor's preferences to "System Scale":

And this should help!

Hi,

Thanks a lot. That has solved it!

By the way, when I select 'System scale', the scaling is correct but the words on my external monitor look fuzzy (as if unnecessary anti-aliasing is being done).

But when I select 'No scale (normal DPI), everything is perfect! ^^
