Microscopic fonts

Menu fonts in LB (version 1.2.01) are so small they’re nearly impossible to read.

I’ve set the Settings “Toolbar icon size” to Largest and “Font size” to 24. Increasing the Microsoft Windows screen size makes no difference. The fonts cause much eye strain trying to read them. Please help.

For those interested, here’s my laptop computer info:
Lenovo Yoga 9 14ITL5

11th gen i7 processor
Win 10 home
Version 21H1

Please let me know if you need anything further to help solve this problem. Thanks!

Maybe you need glasses after all?

Out of curiosity, do you have more than one monitor attached / disconnected & reconnected, or a 2-in-1 laptop with a touchscreen? With my laptop the UI scale can change monitor to monitor, causing LightBurn, Slack, Discord, and plenty of others to glitch out when going between their respective scaled UIs. LightBurn’s UI scale is usually combined with those correctly, but not always.

A screenshot can be useful for diagnosis, or figuring out if this is a bug report, and if so, where to start. Thank you in advance :slight_smile:

I am also having this same issue. I adjust the slider in the Edit Settings dialog to set a font size that is readable. The next time I launch the app the fonts are back to the default, even though the slider is showing the font size I selected. Once I change the slider the fonts size will change again.

Only using laptop. Do not have another monitor attached to it. Tried to attach screenshot, but it only put the link and not the actual image.

Do you have any suggestions, or am I just stuck squinting at the screen? Thanks.

High DPI screens are problematic for the current version of the framework that LightBurn is built upon. Try giving the High DPI system settings some adjustment and let us know if that works for you.

Thanks for your suggestion. I tried the highest display settings available. It made no difference. The menus and dropdowns are so small they’re barely readable.

The problem with tiny fonts is still not resolved. Does someone have a viable solution? Thanks.
