I am new to AECOsim. After years of using of Microstation I assume that it is a natural step forward, which sooner or later we all must make. It is not easy. I installed it on my laptop. The native resolution of my desktop is 3200x1800 on a 15" screen. It is first of my problems. Some or a lot of the names of the icons, commands, symbols are hardly readable. Some of the buttons in openable menus appear over the content and are "hard" to be pressed. I have already played with preferences without success.
It probably cannot be fixed just like that but I would be grateful if anyone knows a solution for this. Changing the resolution does not help.
with best regards

I am working on a laptop too and I have 2 rates 40 Hertz and 60 Hertz.
Which video card do you have installed? If you have an NVIDIA video card, did you try changing the settings using the NVIDIA Control Panel, this gives you more control over the GPU.

I have tried them already. Windows settings seem not to effect Microstation, at least in the way I would expect them. The problem with these settings is that they effect all application. MS office for example works just fine as it is, while Microstation don't. Whenever I try to change them - "enlarge buttons" - so it becomes easier to work with Microstation I loose clear layout of the MS menus, and the size of those buttons becomes ridiculous. I hope I explained it clearly.
When it comes to preferences settings in Microstation itself - mine are already set to large. What's more - the icons of element selection menu are extremely small and do not correspond with the size of the box. The same refers to the Tasks menu on the left hand side - the size of the text vs. the button size. I can't make it work and look readable no matter what the settings are.
