Try Improved Style Dialog bigger then screen, can't press buttons

• Jan 23, 2021 - 20:38

I have a 1920x1080 laptop screen, and just downloaded the latest MuseScore AppImage (3.6) on Ubuntu 20.04. The UI is ginormous by default. I was able to adjust icon size and font sizes in the preferences, but they don't seem to apply to all dialogs. See the dialog about updating to the new style in the screenshot - it is taller then my entire screen and I can't select the options. Any suggestions on how I can get the UI under control?

Simpler with Linux, just add "-D xxx" to the command line.

However, that option only affects the score, icons, and palettes, not dialogs, This generally indicates something different going on. Try setting, or upsetting, QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR (try 1 or 0).

Amazing! QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR=0 ./mscore-portable made the UI look sooooo much better. Now I want to try and get that set in the desktop integration so i don't have to worry about it anymore. thanks so much!

Is there a help article/FAQ somewhere that I could edit for others that come across this?
