Menu and palette font size

• May 29, 2020 - 15:32

I have purchased a new computer with WIN 10, just as the previous one. On this PC, running the same, up-to-date version of MuseScore 3, I have noticed that the menu and palette fonts are too small and not scalable.

There is no issue with scaling fonts on the score, just no setting within the program to deal with menu/palette font size. Re-sizing from within Windows doesn't affect this. Thoughts or suggestions? I've been using MuseScore since 2013.

MuseScore needs to know the resolution of your monitor in order to scale things properly. Probably your monitor configuration is different on this computer and Windows isn't communicating the resolution properly. I'm guessing also your score itself is too small - should be life-sized (same as printed) on screen when viewed at 100%. The real fix is to add the "-D xxx" option to the command line when starting MuseScore, where "xxx" is the resolution of your monitor in DPI.
