    Default Font size in Project Manager view

    The size of the font used to display the Project hierarchy in the Project Manager has suddenly gone so small we cannot read it, all other views in Supervisor are showing normal sized fonts.
    Is there a System setting or .INI file we can edit to enlarge the font size?

    Thanks for the pointer to DPI settings. Turns out that the issue is not with Supervisor (Which we run on a Server) but with how we connect via RDP to the server.
    Windows Server 2016 has an issue whereby if you RDP to it from a 4k screen it can't cope with the high DPI and you get the effects like I described, those effects stay in place while the session is active and my normal practice of just disconnecting the RDC session (but leaving it running) meant that even when I reconnected from another PC the issue remained. Solution was to Logout from the session and restart on a PC with a lower screen DPI and all was well again.
    Without the hint to look at DPI issues I'd never have found the solution

    Hello,

    This is usually a result of the Windows DPI scaling.

    You can try lowering it.

    Or override the dpi scaling in the compatibility option of the Editor exe file.
    The ZENONE32.EXE is located in C:\Program Files\COPA-DATA\ZENON <version>\
    If you use the 32bit version: C:\Program Files (x86)\COPA-DATA\ZENON <version>\

    See attached screenshot.
