Just by launching Cubase, the splash GUI looks “un-sharp” and the text a bit blurry.
In Cubase itself, the toolbar icons (undo/redo, edit icons, etc…) look just like it is “unfocused” / blurry, other text on screen within Cubase GUI - looks “fine”.
For example, “state button” in toolbar looks like this at 120% scale :
Tried with different configurations: HiDPI flag turned on/off, Windows DPI compatibility settings , started the app in safe mode - all ended with same results, blurry splash + icons.
The only way I got Cubase to be displayed sharp in 125% scale factor , is the following “workaround”:
- Set windows scale to 150% or 200%.
- Launch Cubase (now the Splash screen looks sharp!)
- Open a project (the icons look sharp and crisp, but just too big…)
- Set back windows scale to 125% or even 100%
- Check out Cubase GUI… prefect!
Now everything looks sharp, for example, now the “state button” in toolbar :
I hope it helps others that might have this issue.
Is it a “known” issue ? HiDPI feature defect ? configuration issue ?
Any suggestions ?
