#34787 e-Sword 11.2.2 & Windows 10 problem (blurry font; DPI issue)

Posted by jow schmoe on 01 December 2018 - 01:16 PM in e-Sword Questions & Answers

To the admin:

Josh, you have it wrong and paint me as some wacko.
I e-mailed Rick directly from the e-Sword website. You could infer that from my 2nd post. That was my initial issue; don't misunderstand.
My censored comments were probably unnecessary... yet by your censorship they look and imply something worse that others >ahem< fill in with their own imaginations.
I was respectful in my email to Rick and am more casual on a message board as that is how message boards go.
And I will not bow down to any free software maker... if they do not make a fully "Windows" functional "Windows" program then I have an issue.

Good grief. Having to defend myself on a Bible software message board about a windows 10 issue that no constructive replies have been made to. Time to go back to lurking.

#34776 e-Sword 11.2.2 & Windows 10 problem (blurry font; DPI issue)

Sorry, Rick did take the time to respond... so I take that back... and it was before my posting.
(Although, where did my last unanswered question disappear to years ago?)

Unfortunately he suggests my own remedy with 'Compatitblity - Change DPI settings - etc.'


I wish this was fixed. Nothing is as simply usable as e-Sword; especially for much copying and pasting neatly to docs. Not Xiphos,TheWord, etc..

#34775 e-Sword 11.2.2 & Windows 10 problem (blurry font; DPI issue)

So far after an uprgade that included Windows 10 features (?), the blurry font scaling (DPI scaling) has not been fixed.
My DPI scaling is only 125% and e-Sword looks awful.

Is there an alternative software to use until this gets fixed? I'd rather use even a clumsy website like BibleGateway instead of messing with my eyes on blurry font.
If you right click on the e-Sword program within it's folder you can attempt to change the DPI scaling issue in [Compatibility - Change high DPI settings] where 'system (enhanced)' in 'High DPI scaling override' is... however...

it still looks somewhate blurry. I can't imagine anything higher than 125%... and this is on a small wide 15-inch, 1080-res screen.


I sent an e-mail off to Rick Meyers... [removed by moderator]

Please address mainly the above but there is also a bug where once launched the title bar only looks inactive or in the background of programs/windows... yet once minimized and (maximized) restored it functions fine. Anyone else with that issue too?
