Display on UHD (4k) monitors

It is not a great thing, but as the constellation I use may not be used very often I thought it makes sense to report it.

I have two monitors: a 23"/HD and a 27"/UHD where the second one extends the first one.. In the Windows 10 settings the first one is configured to use 100% scaling for text, apps and other elements while the second one is set to 150%.

When I move windows from the primary to the secondary screen the window is enlarged to 150% and shrinked to 100% when moved back. This is true for all applications I used so far - except Sigil.

In Sigil the font changes for the menues, buttons and headers, but the corresponding fields do not resize (clipping the strings) and the icons in the toolbars also remain the same. Also some lines in the Book Browser get bigger while most of them remain small. The attached screen capture shows the problem.

I guess this problem also occures on single schreen systems when the scaling is set to a value other than 100%

I assume this is Windows right? Please see this issue on Sigil's github site and try some of the approaches suggested there to find something that might work for you.

It works, thanks

Sorry, I only searched in this forum.

The trick with setting the "Override high DPI scaling behaviour" to be performed by "System (Enhanced)" in the sigil.exe properties did it.

Great! Thanks for reporting back. Perhaps I should make a sticky thread with that information so it's available here on the forum, too.

I'm unable to find such a property. Is it on a specific tab??

It's property on Windows 10, I believe. It's on the compatibility tab when you right-click on sigil.exe. It's not a Sigil setting, if that's what you're thinking.

Ah, yes. There it is.
  • Right click on sigil.exe
  • select properties
  • select compatibility tab
  • select 'Change high DPI setttings' button
  • at the bottom check the box for 'Override High DPI scaling behavior.'
  • Select 'System (Enhanced)' as the method for 'Scaling performed by:'

Thanks!
