Custom Shop has very small text [Resolved]

Postby lrutherford » Mon Jun 29, 2020 11:19 pm

Hi all,

I've recently moved my Amplitube 4/Reaper rig to a new Thinkpad.

Problem is now everytime I open Custom Shop the text and images are very small and almost unreadable - certainly not pleasant to use. The Thinkpad is very high def at 2880x1620, but even changing this resolution down does not alter the size of CS.

Any ideas?

Cheers

Have you tried setting the scaling in Windows? I use a Surface Pro with high DPI display and the default scaling works with Custom Shop.

Thanks Peter,

I have looked at the high DPI windows settings and tried a variety of settings, but all to no avail... my CS still has tiny text and pretty unusable. All the other apps on the Thinkpad scale fine. It's interesting that changing the resolution and %age scaling does not alter it all - it's always small text/images.

Any other ideas?

Cheers

Good oh :)

To help others with the same problem can you post the steps to take to ignore the system DPI settings?

ok so to fix the small text CS issue....

Locate the CS executable file... for me it was in

C:\Program Files (x86)\IK Multimedia\Custom Shop

right-click on the custom shop application file and select PROPERTIES

goto the COMPATABILITY then to "change high DPI settings"

At the bottom of these settings change the High DPI overide...

select the "Overide high DPI scaling behaviour by" option and set it to System.

All should then be good!

Rock on!
