Hi, i picked up cmano in the steam sale as it was a bargin. I installed it and immediately ran into a problem. I use a 4k monitor (3840 x 2160) and have had to increase the scaling in windows 8.1 just to make anything readable. I increased the scaling from within the windows system settings to the recommended level but once i loaded up cmano the text it still tiny, it's barely readable and is very blurry.

Does anyone know how to get cmano to scale properly? I could show you what i mean easily with a screenshot but don't have the post count yet :/ With the release of affordable 4k monitors i would imagine this could effect quite a few people.

Well, you could increase the font text within windows settings. There's a couple actually. Some are under accessibility options, others can be found in the window customizations options. Another option would be the ClearType tuner. This isn't going to make things bigger, but instead adjust how the antialias works on system menus (and hopefully CMANO).

Let me know hat works.

Hi Ocel0t, i changed the font size within the windows system settings and everthing looks good, sharp and large enough in windows, it's just when cmano loads up it seems to ignore the windows system settings. The text is tiny compared to the windows system font size.

Hello,

Command currently handles DPI settings up to 125% reasonably well but is known to have issues on higher DPI settings. It would help us a lot if you could post screenshots of the problematic areas you come accross.

To get around the posting limitations for images here, you can upload your screenshots to free image hosts (like imgur etc.) and link the pictures in your posts here.

Thanks!

Here we go: i've had to alter the link as i can't post links either, just put dots where the spaces are: i imgur com/BK0b2mq png

It's not fuzzy now but the font is still minute on the screen.

So it stops scalng after 125 dpi? I think this is the issue as my dpi is over that. I wonder why 125 dpi was chosen as the limit? It really is tiny, such a shame :(

We are sorry for your troubles. Command is currently not optimized for very high DPI settings such as in your case. We are aware of this limitations and are researching ways to address it.

As a temporary workaround we would recommend switching to full-HD resolution (ie. 1920x1080) when using Command, as it is known to work very well in this setting.

Thank you for your understanding on this.
