Ranorex and 4k displays

Post by nastya1413 » Mon Feb 13, 2017 1:01 pm

Hi guys,
I've bought a new laptop with 4k resolution :D And I've faced with the a problem. Ranorex Studio hasn't resized after changing resolution of display settings, please note that other apps were resized correctly, see screenshot in attached file 2017-02-13_1320.png

P.s. OS Win10 Pro, changing resolution of display settings in Settings - System - Display. I've changed advanced display settings resolution to 3840 x 2160 and 'Change the size of text, apps, and other items' to 250%. Actually

Ranorex always recommends that you leave the display scaling set to 100%. In addition, this is most likely a SharpDevelop issue, not a Ranorex-specific issue.

If you have trouble reading the text with scaling at 100%, then you should change the resolution to 1920x1080 (Full-HD) instead of 4K.
Shortcuts usually aren't...
