    I was setting up Blend on my wife's Lenovo Ultrabook running win 8.1. Everything works fine except the font is so small! Smaller than the font on the Passport!! Lol. What's the point?!

    I saw a previous thread in which someone suggested using the windows magnifier. No way. That's a terribly clumsy work around.

    Tried maximizing the window and it does nothing to the components, just extends the calendar timeline.

    I've tried jacking up the "Change size of all items" within the windows resolution menu to 250%, which is what she uses and most everything else looks normal without feeling like she's using a granpa machine (no offense CB granpas!).

    Also tried right clicking on Blend, properties, and toggling "disabling scaling on high DPI settings", and tried running in compatibility mode for Windows 7.

    But nothing. Blend is basically unusable, see the pic below.

    Does anyone have any solutions for this? Pretty sure it's a windows issue, but only some programs seem to exhibit it, including Blend. Thanks!

    Is there a way to really fix the tiny font issue with Blend on Win 8.1??-img_20141027_234514.jpg

    I can't even get it to work on win 8.1 but it works fine on 7 but font size is small. Maybe adjust screen res

    I can't adjust the screen resolution without the rest of the displayed items looking bad.

    Ah well,.. Blend goes to waste until I figure it out.

    Yeah, the problem is Microsoft, the software makers, and the hardware manufacturers don't talk. There are no standards and extremely limited API's within Windows for device manufacturers and developers to work with high density screens. Adobe, for example, hasn't been able to fix many of their products for over a year due to Microsoft's lack of updates/support (or so they have claimed).

    Moral here is don't buy a high-res computer/screen with Windows on it.

    Yeah, definitely an issue with these fancy high res screens. But Blend should have some ability to manually zoom/scale in (like a browser).
