    Resize Avid Program and Font Sizes?

    I've got my new, groovy, 27" Dell P2715Q monitors set to 3840 x 2160, for maximum real estate. However, the side effect of this is miniscule fonts and icons in Avid. Some Apple apps let you change their font size, but I don't see that option in Avid (apart from changing bin size fonts and project window fonts). Everything is too darn small to read, but I like all the extra editing space. is there anyway to increase the timeline, effects pallete, mixer, etc fonts and icons?

     

    Thanks in advance

    Settings - Interface - Allow Custom Bin Backgrounds - Default Bin Font

    Timeline - select window, Edit menu - Select Font

    Project - same as Timeline

    Effects pallette - nope, nada, no options

    Mixer - you might be the only user that's not complaining about the size

    You might want to mention this in the Feature request forum

    Does the OS see it as Retina and treats it as such? Or the whole interface is just smaller?

    Re: Resize Avid Program and Font Sizes?

    A scalable GUI for MC has been a feature request for a while. But not implemented yet. So for now hires displays as GUI just don't work.

    Hopefully Avid will see this as an important next feature improvement...

     

    For now just switch you screen res down to 1920x1080 for something you can use. And hope...

    Re: Resize Avid Program and Font Sizes?

    The Mixer is a lot smaller at 3840 x 2160, but yes, I'd like it smaller like everyone else. I'd also like live mixing instead of playback stopping every time I want to change levels.

    I've given up on Feature Requests. I've been asking for the same things for 15 years, and not one has been address. Basic stuff, like the above mixer request, background saving, updated Title Tool (not the Marquee tool, that was a mess), updated GUI so it doesn't look like I'm working on a 20 year old app, etc.

    Don't have Retina. The whole interface is smaller.

    Re: Resize Avid Program and Font Sizes?

    Had this on a new Z Book the other day.  Insanely small icons and fonts and the 1920x1080 res just looks s**t.  Many high res monitors out there nowdays, 4k/UHD monitors under £350.  Time to address this one methinks..

    Re: Resize Avid Program and Font Sizes?

    I second this.  Adding 4k support is great, now how about supporting a usable interface to control it?

    These posts might be more effective in the Feature Request Forum, folks.  If you'd like me to move them rather than reposting, let me know.

    Re: Resize Avid Program and Font Sizes?

    I don't see the point. Avid hasn't listened to any of my feature requests for the past 18 years, I don't see this being any different.

    Re: Resize Avid Program and Font Sizes?

    I'm with steelborn.  Obviously AVID will have noticed this issue already, and as well meaning as you intended it, I don't think I'll follow up on your suggestion either. The Media Composer interface could really use a major face lift and it is a disquieting sign that it's not being addressed.

    Re: Resize Avid Program and Font Sizes?

    I'm using MC 8.5.1 with OSX 10.11.14

     

    There is no Edit > set font menu pulldown for any window. I can only adjust font size for project and bin windows through interface settings.  Any thoughts?
