Configuring BC Framer / Sapphire Structure and Windows With Large 4K Monitor Screen Resolution

BC Framer® software menus can be jumbled or compressed on large, high screen resolution monitors or even smaller screens such as the Microsoft Surface laptop.

Some dialogs that are affected:
- Hatching
- Generate layout sheets
- Advanced material
- Justification
- Floor Performance
- Generate Group Labels

Suggestions to resolve this:

  • Change the Resolution. 1920 x 1080 may work but try a resolution closer to 2000 dpi (around 2560 dpi tends to be an acceptable resolution).
  • Revert the text size setting in Windows to 100%:
    - In the Start menu search or in the Cortana taskbar search, type display (or display settings). Windows 10 users may also right-click the desktop and choose Display Settings.
    - Move the slider to 100% or select "Smaller - 100%" and click Apply.
    - Log out and log in to Windows or reboot the computer.
  • **This has been the most successful solution for Windows 10**
