Can anyone advise how to increase the font size in RM media detail screens (descriptions, captions, file path, etc)?  None of the program options for font size seem to have any effect on these texts.

 

Thanks

Rick

You would have to change Windows Display settings, with consequential effect on all apps.

Yes, tried that and only helped if you go above 100%, which causes distortion and sometimes hides parts of the screen making navigation etc problematic. I thought maybe there was a setting in RM that I might have overlooked. I use a good sized lap top, but maybe a larger monitor would help. Guess I'll just have to "squint" a little harder.

Thanks

I have mine set to 125% at 1920 x 1080. You could lower the resolution and that will make the characters look bigger, too. For the same aspect ratio as 1920 x1080, try 1366 x 768.

Tom,

I tried the 1366x768 @ 125%

Helped a lot

Thanks for the tip

This display issue in higher resolution screens had better be fixed in RM8.
