Since I am planning to buy my first notation software soon, I am testing the current Dorico trial version.
I am still on Windows 7/64bit, which I understand is not officially supported anymore. But since there are reports from many users that Dorico is working flawlessly under Windows 7, I wanted to give it a shot.
Now here is my problem: I am on a Laptop and my global UI scaling in the Windows settings is set to 150%. Unfortunately, when starting Dorico the UI is basically broken (buttons not showing full text, UI elements too large, therefore some elements not visible).
Now I initially had a similar issue with Cubase 9, but this could easily be fixed by right clicking Cubase9.exe and selecting “Disable Display Scaling On High DPI Settings” which fixed all problems within Cubase.
However, the same workaround has no effect on Dorico. I will admit that the UI looks fine when setting the Windows OS scaling level to standard 100%, but keeping the OS scaling at this level is unfortunately not an acceptable long term solution for me.
So my questions would be:
a) Is there anything I could do to resolve this problem?
b) If not, does anybody know if the Dorico issue with the global scaling exists on Windows 10 as well?
Thanks a lot!
