Just installed sound forge pro 11 yesterday and the toolbars and icons are so tiny I cant really see them. If I hadn't had a previous version I wouldn't even know what they are. The manual says the toolbars can be resized but I don't see how to fix this. Thanks
Nope, this here is the correct forum for Sound Forge. Vegas forum is only for Vegas.
There is actually a lot more discussion on SF on the Samplitude Forum than here, because SF was bundled with Samplitude ProX3 Suite.
This is one of the problems of having these different forums. It would be best to have all Magix products in the same forum, but then Magix would suffer the outrage of the Vegas, Samplitude and Xara users.
I went hunting for the info on the icon and text sizes and found nothing. I tried within SF and could not do it. I will keep watching. However, my screen resolution is 1920x1080. I don't have SF on my Surface Pro which is 2736x1824 and I would expect smaller icons. If you have an ultra high resolution screen, you may have to change the Windows parameters to get larger text and icons. I haven't looked into this.
Thanks for the replies, I wrote to support also and was recommended to lower the display resolution for now, and that a fix is in the works for this known issue. I lowered it and now can see the icons.
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
- 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.
Hi, welcome to the Magix forums and especially a big thank you for posting the solution to a problem which, although it does not affect me directly, is one that is becoming increasingly "common" as higher resolution monitors become the norm.
I have tagged your post as the solution to the original question.
The toolbar icons were the size of specs of dust, totally unreadable and near impossible to select. Re-adjusting the screen res from 2160p to 1080p and changing DPI settings did little to nothing. Vegas, SF10 and even the beta test versions of SF12-AS had 'normal sized' icons. So I've been using SF10 mostly. I tried adjusting the compatibility settings prior, but maybe I missed something, so I'll try the above.
I do not recall this issue with Pro 12. Try an uninstalling with a third-party uninstaller that cleans the normally left-over data, then reinstall.
Aside from the 2017 comments, you can try lowering the PC's display resolution, I have my 15" 4k laptop display set down to 1920x1080. Lowering the DPI is another option to try. (100 to 125% for instance) This of course with be global and affect the desktop, ect
