surface 3 issue
« on: August 31, 2016, 08:18:35 PM »
i'm using surface 3 tablet now. the display seems "scrunched" and it is difficult to see the "set per player" number of chips. the box won't stretch and I can't see the number to change it. how do I change settings to read everything?

I've personally never used a surface.  Is there any way you can post a screen capture?

Here you go. See on the controls where the words are cut off?

Yes, I see the issue.  This is most likely caused by the system font size being increased, probably in order to more easily read standard font sizes on a higher resolution screen.  At least that's usually why the system font size has been increased.  For some folks like me who are starting to need reading glasses, it might be increased even on lower resolutions.  :)

This is one of the issues I'm trying to resolve in version 3.4.  I would suggest trying the beta version, as the font size within the application is now adjustable, and the entire user interface has been revamped to accommodate varying font sizes.

You can download it from the forums: http://www.thetournamentdirector.net/forums/index.php?topic=5161.0

Install it just like any other update.  It will update version 3 to version 3.4 beta 2 (take a backup first in case you want to go back to version 3.3).  Font size can be set on the Preferences tab in the Display category.
