ST3 Pro on a 4K monitor
#4
Hi obrazell,

I tried to set the Compatibility Mode setting to override the scale factor for high DPI monitors (or whatever Win 10 calls it). When I did that ST3 Pro opened with 5 green stars in the Object Rating column for all objects in the observing list. When I tried to open the atlas or a telescope Sky Simulation, ST3 Pro crashed with no error given.

When I first installed the 4K monitor, all of my desktop icons were in the top left quadrant of the screen  Sad . I increased the display resolution to 225% to get a nice looking desktop again. Some programs worked fine after that and some like, Photoshop, produced microscopic icons and text (unreadable/unusable). I've been applying the override DPI settings under the compatibility mode tab for programs that produce small icons or text & that usually works.

I've also installed a new video card to go with the new monitor. The drivers are less than a week old so they should be OK. The new video card & drivers worked fine with the old, lower res monitor.

Next I'll lower the display resolution to 1920 x 1080 & see what happens. I won' need to exit & reenter Windows to do that, but it will probably scramble all the desktop icons  Sad Sad .

Thanks for your help,

Phil S.
