    Hello all,

    I'm using Blend w Passport (1154) on a Surface Pro 3 w Windows 8.1. Works great (Link doesn't but that's a different story}.

    Now, problem is I can't see a darn thing. The Blend window and everything that's in it is so tiny that it's almost impossible to read (or scroll, for that matter, b/c the scroll bar is so narrow that I keep missing it). ‎

    Everything else on the machine is displayed correctly, incl Link. It's just the Blend window. Makes it practically unusable. I've tried the usual stuff to increase font size etc, but Blend doesn't seem to care. Also adjusted the DPI settings from within the blend.exe properties, makes no difference.

    Would anybody have an idea how to solve this? Maybe it's just a small adjustment somewhere, and I'm merely too stupid to see it.

    Thanks a lot!

    I've been thinking about installing it to try... but was afraid of the additional load on the battery life of my tablet. I've been careful about installing some apps as they see Windows and they think it's fine to run in the background all the time.

    Maybe try running in compatibility mode?

    Thanks for the idea; afraid makes no difference though. That thing is extremely resistant.

    There's an additional problem with Link. So far I haven't been able to sync my contacts and calendar (pics etc via wifi work fine).

    Supposedly some people got it to work but not me. Just so you're aware of it.

    Was considering SurfacePro, but this is not good!

    Also started looking at HP Stream Tablets (Win 8.1). Anyone have experience with those regarding Blend?

    Even on my 15.6" 1080p laptop, contents in Blend are too small.

    I think bb needs to add support for those screens.

    Just installed Blend on my Dell venue pro 11. Yes it is small. BlackBerry need to put a setting for font sizing

    It's the screen resolution. The laptops is much less than the dell if you got the 1920x1080 one.

    I read that BlackBerry will be fixing the small font problem in the next Blend version. However they never said when that would come.

    I can read Blend fine on Surface Pro 3 and Link is working flawlessly as well.
    I've got some issues with Link on MacBook Air, remote files access for example not working.
    But on Surface Pro 3 all works great.
