CE: 10.14.00.109 / v8i: 08.11.09.916
I found a couple of problems with the way Microstation handles Windows 10 display scaling for UHD/ 4K monitors. The first relates to the different ways a Saved View are interpreted between v8i and CONNECT. A Saved View created in v8i will not reproduce accurately in CONNECT when the recommended 150% scaling is applied in the Windows 10 Display Settings.
This is a problem when transitioning from v8i to CONNECT, because the size of saved views cannot be reproduced when I try to re-render scenes from old v8i files. The steps below are self explanatory. Please scroll further down this post for the second issue.
In both cases, one would expect Microstation to adapt to the Windows 10 “Recommended” settings, if Bentley has certified this edition for use with Windows 10.
The second issue is cosmetic, but annoying….
Apparently in Windows 10 you can now address High DPI scaling issues for apps on an individual basis if needed.
Here's a link to info about this feature and how to use it. https://pureinfotech.com/fix-display-scaling-issues-windows-10/#fix_app_scaling_windows10
Hope this helps.
Thanks Ron - I've dabbled with this a few times, but find that while it solves some of the issues, it kicks up a bunch of other problems. In the latest iteration, the Render dialog was repaired (icons no longer sliced off, Zoom dialog looks much better), but all text in the Microstation interface becomes blurred and lines in active windows are no longer anti-aliased. My second window's text was the opposite - no smoothing at all. One can then spend hours tweaking the Program Settings in Nvidia's Control Panel, but ultimately I've never arrived at a perfect GUI for Connect.
It doesn't help that I have a mixed resolution setup (1x UHD screen in the middle, flanked by two WSXGA+ screens), but this has never been a problem for Microstation v8i.
