UI Scaling gone haywire

Post by smeeuwsens »

Hi I'm running FreeOffice on Fedora 30 on a Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga with a 4K screen. For whatever reason I now have really large interface text and the option to change the UI scaling is now no longer reachable from the File > Options dialog because it falls of the top of the screen (see screenshot attached

).

Can I change this in some other way?

Thanks,
Serge

I too have the same issue. I've tried the recommendations in the previews post and that doesn't work. Any other suggestions?

When you get to the options dialog that is being cropped:
1. Press CTRL+TAB (3 times) to switch to the appearance tab
2. Press TAB (3 times) to select the "User Interface Size"
3. Press enter
4. Change the control size to normal

I thought I was the only one! I too experience this issue. I tried both suggestions in this topic but it didn't work (touch mode didn't change it and control size is already set to normal).

UI under Windows 10 on 4k monitor is tiny, no matter what I chose in Windows under "compatibility." In Textmaker under Windows there is no option under Appearance / User Interface to change the size of the interface, except for activiating Touch Mode. that increases the size of UI fonts but not the size of the menu fonts.
