Grateful if someone can help me. I've just purchased Multiframe version 21. I've tried it on 3 separate monitors and changed the Windows display settings but all that does is change the text font size, it doesn't increase the size of the toolbars/ icons. They are too small to see, so I can't choose the right icon, rendering the software unusable. Grateful for any advice. Thanks.
Unfortunately, this is the way it is. Some of the very high resolution screens are making icons in Multiframe difficult.
In good news, all of the items on the icon bar are replicated in the menus and the right click context menu. The icons also have tool tips stating what they are.
If you can't identify the icons, then you'll need to use one of these alternatives. The right click context menus are often faster to work with than icons.
Sorry I can't be the bearer of better news.

Thanks for the explanation. I had just concluded the same. Any idea if Microsoft are working on this as I understand this affects other software. I will try to work out how to contact them and whether they are likely to listen.
I haven't had any communication with Microsoft, but I think you would be lucky to get a positive response from them.
Let me know if you do work out any clever work arounds.
I had this problem too. There is a fix for this. This seems to be a DPI issue. Here is what you need to do.
1) Press Windows Logo key + R to open a Run. Type in regedit and press Enter.
2) In the left pane of the Registry Editor, navigate to the following directory:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion(This starts out as HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE then click the little arrow to find SOFTWARE, then Microsoft, etc...)
3) Click on SideBySide in the left pane to expand its contents in the right pane. Right-click on an empty space in the right pane, hover over New and click on DWORD (32-bit) value.4) Name the file PreferExternalManifest and press Enter. Right-click the new DWORD value and click on Modify. Type 1 into the Value Data. Change the value’s Base to Decimal. Click on OK. Close the Registry Editor.5) Open NotePad and paste the following typical manifest:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0" xmlns:asmv3="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v3">
6) Save the Notepad document as the full name of the executable file of the program you are trying to disable display scaling on high DPI devices for, followed by the .manifest extension. For example, the name of a manifest file for Multiframe would be Multiframe64.exe.manifest7) Move the manifest file to the root directory of the program you are trying to turn display scaling on high DPI devices off for – this is the directory where the program’s files, including its executable file (such as multiframe64.exe for Multiframe 64 bit) are located. An example of such a root directory is:
C:\Program Files\Bentley/Offshore/Multiframe CONNECT Edition V22
Done! This should be automatic. So just start up multiframe. If you have been messing with the scale of the app under properties and compatibility this may not work. To solve that problem just restore the property settings.
