Toolbar icons size

rraud wrote on 5/23/2017, 10:28 AM

This had not been a problem before until 'upgrading' to Win 10 on a new laptop. The SF-11 toolbar icons are about the size of pin heads and impossible to read and next to impossible to use, and my eyes ain't what they used to be. All the other SF UI graphics and text are OK. I've tried different screen resolutions and DPI settings and other Windows graphic settings, which do little to nothing to the toolbar icon size. Is there a user setting I missed or in the hidden settings? (Which I forgot how to access anyway. Below is a screenshot of the SF window. I suppose I'll find the same aggravation when I install VP. All other applications icons are of a usable size. Thanks, Rick

This is the fix: From ScotCall

"I had the same issue with small toolbars after installing on a new Windows 10 laptop with 4k screen. I figured out the solution and wanted to share with anyone that may be looking for it:

- Right-click Sound Forge Pro 11 shortcut / icon

- Properties

- Compatibility

- Under Settings, click the check-mark box for "Override high DPI scaling behavior. 'Scaling performed by:'

- Next line under that, click the drop-down box and select "System (Enhanced)"

- Click the Apply button

- Start Sound Forge Pro 11. The program now runs at its native resolution, which I believe is 1080p. Splash screen, menus, icons, toolbars, waveforms, and everything else should now be correctly sized."

I tried this in SF 12 but it does not work. Is there a different fix for SF 12? Please advise.
