Scaling issues make WinReducer unusable

on Thu 12 May 2016 - 14:49
I love the app and use it plenty on my desktop, but recently got a Surface Book, and basically can't use the app because it looks like this:

It gets worse on other screens:

I'm probably part of a minority, but as high DPI screen become more common, you'll probably hear this more. I have also tried "Disable display scaling..." but it has no effect:

hi,

what resolution do you have?

from the ReadMe of winreducer:

2. MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS
Screen Resolution: 1024 × 768 (Best view in 1920 x 1080 with a DPI of 120 (= 125%))

3000 by 2000 with 225% scaling, but for some reason the Windows 10 "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings" option seems to have no effect

Hello,

I confirm that I was working on the WinReducer GUI High DPI fix, and it will be deployed today in a new build (v0.7.2.0).

I do not have a High DPI screen but I've tried with a 150% DPI, and the fix solved the GUI cosmetics troubles. 

I also added some improvements in the "SETTINGS" window top bar, in order to get more space for translated strings in the selection buttons (Features, Services, Unattended, ...).

Could you please try the new build (when released) and report here the result. Thank you very much Smile

Yes i can try. But this tweak must be tested on non-Virtual Machine because if you try on VM this bug never happen i know that because i already try both ways.

Thanks.

Hello,

The main trouble about the DPI fix in tweaks section, should be the dependency to the screen resolution and the fact that it's reinitialized at each startup which makes this difficult to fix without using a local file in the start menu startup folder.

Hello,

v0.7.3.0 fixed all remaining troubles with checkboxes, so it should be OK with this.
