Good Morning;

since i got a new monitor with 4K resolution, i wanted to scale up the text and gui sizes in the windows settings to 150% for better readability.
In the Corona VFB it seems to work with the font size but the rest of the gui appears to stay untouched (See attached images).

I somehow can work with this, but it would be nice to have the gui elements also scale to the right size for better readability ;)

Greetings,
Moritz

Hi there, I can confirm that this happens also but after closing Cinema and re-opening it, all was in proportion. Did you try this at all?

Hey Bengamin,

thanks for checking. I didn't check that. But I found out, that when i move the vfb from my main display (where the scaling is set to 100% and everything works fine) to the display with 150% scale, it first looks "right" but the scale then is still at 100%. when i resize or maximize the vfb window on the second screen the font gets bigger (i assume 150%) and doesn't fit anymore. Can you maybe confirm this?

Off topic, but do you have your monitors on top of each other as opposed to side by side.
Could you post a picture of your set up, and are you standing or sitting?
 
Is it any better for working with do you find. I have never seen this set up in the 3D business and I am curious.
Thank you

Hey,

first of, thanks for reporting it to the dev-team :)

And for Philip: I'd rather prefer a side by side monitor setup, but since i bought a pair of nearfield audio monitors (Speakers ;) ) and they have to be placed pretty accurate left and right, i didn't have the space for my 2nd screen on the side.
It takes a bit to get used to, but then it is not that bad ;) I attached a image of my setup, just ignore the non existing cable management, thats still something i have to do ;)

Greetings,
Moritz
