Locked Re: "Bug" Report - Release Candidate WSJT-X 2.6.0-rc1 #IssueReport #windows11 #mainscreen


Sorry, Uwe. My buttons never change sizes even after restarting the GUI.

I even restarted Windows.

I finally figured it out but this will not work on my 5k monitor…

To make this work, I had to set scaling to 100% *and* lower the resolution to 3200 x 1800. Previously, it had been 200% (and whatever 5k resolution is). Not even 150% (or even 125%) works at either resolution. For whatever reason, macOS has the scaling correct. Windows does not.

For what it’s worth, I’m running Win11 in a VM on my 2020 27” iMac. I have 4 cores and 16 GB RAM dedicated to the VM. Normally, the resolution is shared between macOS and the VM. I only changed it to test.

I have not yet tried on my RPi. I’m not even sure what the resolution and scaling is on it - I connect to it through VNC. If I get a chance today, I will; otherwise, I expect it to act like macOS.

Another important hint: If you change the font size and there are problems with the layout, then restart WSJT-X once. The automatic switching of the button width requires a one-time restart of the program!

I have just tested this again. It works fine on my computer. I personally use "MS Shell Dlg 2" as font. I can set for example 8 pt or even 16 pt and after the said restart the GUI scales as it should. See the following screenshots:
