UI very small in Windows 10

Dec 9, 2015 at 8:22 AM
Any ideas on how to configure the view size of text in the editor? Text is very very small and the editor is close to unusable for me.

I'm running on a Surface Pro 3 with WIndows 10. Size of text, apps and other items is at 150%.

Thanks for reporting this! I have entered an issue on the Github project, that's where primary development is taking place: https://github.com/ajryan/TFSTestStepsEditor/issues/3

I have a question, please respond to it here or on Github, whichever is more convenient -
Is the text of the entire window (menu, buttons) small, or only the action/result grid? If you can post a screenshot that would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Aidan

Hi Aidan.

Thanks for replying.

Here are som pictures when using a resolution 2160x1440 - the editor compared to IE11. Though now I just realized, that the IE11 is running 150% zoom, as I changed the Display settings in Windows 10 to 150% for size of text, apps and other items.

However, the menu items in IE11 zooms to 150%, it would be nice if the editor could do the same. Or I could just change my resolution... I know :)

Hi Michael,
If your environment is like my test box a temporary workaround is:
1) Launch the application (displays correct size)
2) Open your test record (shrinks to 100% zoom)
3) Close your test record (displays correct size)
4) Open your test record (displays correct size)

The issue seems to be associated with the initial creation of the test control, I've seen similar issues with another application I work with in .net 4.5 with the winforms SplitContainer (which is used here as well) and in that case rectified it through a hacky solution, but in .net 4.5.2 patch notes it seemed like MS might have resolved that so pointing the project at a newer .net framework may resolve it in this case as well. So if you have the capabilities on hand to install VS 2015 I'd recommend going down the route.
Kind regards,

Hi Josiah!

Thanks for the info. Do you mind sharing the hacky workaround? I'm worried that even if I publish a build created with VS 2015, users who don't have .NET 4.5.2 installed may still get the buggy behavior.

Madeye, if you're able to, could you install the latest .NET Framework 4.6.1 (from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=49981) and let me know if the issue is resolved?

Thanks

Hi.

I am not able to reproduce this. My experience is:

1) Launch the application (displays correct size)
2) Open your test record (shrinks to 100% zoom)
3) Close your test record (same as step 2)
4) Open your test record (same as step 2)

Hi.

I installed the .NET Framework 4.6.1 and nothing changed in regards to the editor - same shrinking behavior.
