Menus gone crazy

Post by iangibson365 » Mon May 07, 2018 1:26 am

Why does this happen? This is absolutely ridiculous for a high end product charging a lot of money.

Cubase 9.5, i7 generation 8, 500 gig SSD, 16 gig RAM. Dedicated laptop, best there is, dedicated to running Cubase 9.5. (which I've just paid to upgrade from 9.0). And this is what I get for being loyal to Steinberg. I have a very busy life. I have to get things finished. I don't need this.

This is an OS configuration issue.

Set Windows' DPI scaling to 100%, or try this:

Open this folder:

C:\Program Files\Steinberg\Cubase 9.5\

Right click on "Cubase9.5.exe", select "Properties" from the menu that pops up.
Switch to the "Compatibility" tab and uncheck "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings". Click OK.
Every time someone says "it must be easy to add/fix", a programmer dies.

Cubase Pro and Wavelab Pro (latest), Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, MSI Z87-G45 GAMING, i5 4690k, GeForce GTX 760, almost every Steinberg plugin and expansion, Trilian, Komplete 10, etc etc etc etc

I shouldn't have to do this. Windows scaling is a standard feature used by many laptops. If I'm getting into the realm of having to adjust properties of high end software just so it will display properly, this does not reflect a stable and well tested platform. The software should take account of scaling seamlessly.

I will try these ideas.
