Adjust resolution
« on: June 17, 2018, 17:40:44 »
I'm getting old, and my eyes would say thanks you, if I could change the general display resolution of OpenMPT, regardless of my native windows resolution, like a "control +/-" command in web browsers like Chrome, for instance..

Possible ?

You can choose a custom font and size in the settings dialog for the pattern data, but since it's a bitmap font, there is no simple way to simply scale it up and down like in a browser.

Yes, indeed, too bad it affects only patterns.

All other font sizes are according to your Windows configuration. So if they are too small for you, you need to increase the font size in Windows, or why would it only matter in OpenMPT and not any other applications?

Well, I don't know why, but it is the only application which bothers me in full resolution. I'll try lowering windows, then.

You may want to try changing the font size before lowering the resolution (which will look ugly) as I said. Try setting the interface size to 125% or 150% in the control panel.

Yes, indeed : very ugly.
