upgraded to Resolve 17.4 UI screen way too big

PostMon Oct 25, 2021 12:09 pm

Hi Team,
This is my First post as I cannot find a resolution to this matter.

Compliments to the Blackmagic developers for such a great editing software.

I have recently upgraded DaVinci Resolve to the newly released 17.4.(free version)

I have been using Resolve since the ver.15 and i never had problems, however today when launching the software the UI of the workspace was way to big and scaled in a way too large to effectively do some editing.

If i scale the windows display at 100% or 150% the other apps and icons are way too small ( the current setting is a t 250% recommended by windows).

I have a 4k screen and a nvidia 1050.

are there any settings somewhere or is there something i can do to avoid this problem.

Thank you for your help

Hi,
I have the same problem. Did you find a solution?
DR has always worked fine for me too until now. Downgrading to 17.3 at least set things back to normal.
Seems many of the upgrades are for Mac, and maybe BM are leaving Windows behind?
It is disappointing. Hopefully it will be fixed soon, I paid for the Studio version.

100% UI scaling on 4K monitor? One can hardly read the text on the screen with 100% scaling.

Anyway, it is better to right-click on the Fusion and/or Resolve EXE file. Choose Properties then Compatibility Tab.
Click on Change High DPI Setting. Check the box for Override high DPI scaling behavior and choose System from the dropdown. See image.
However, I think UI scaling issue needs to be fixed. It worked perfectly until version 17.3.x.

Hello everyone. I have the same problem too...

Thanks Suhaib Siddiqi, your solution works but only partially, the interface is smaller but very grainy.

This DPI issue is a long story and I wonder

1: if there is another temporary solution
2: if BMD will one day resolve permanently ...

(I realize now how similar BMD is to BDSM ... a creepy coincidence?)

BMD (s) please fix this !!

Actually setting a custom 249% in the monitor scaling settings seems to have temporarily solved the issue.

Hope this helps

I know it doesn't help the Windows users, but for the first time ever I can read the UI text in Linux.
Centos 8
RX 580
AMDGPU-pro
Studio (What ever the latest is)

Return to DaVinci Resolve
