DoubleCad XT 5.0 32- Bit
1. How can I increase the icon size, as the images are too small to be able to use? See attached image.
Under Options / Preferences I have icon size at 128, being the maximum.

2. In the second attachment, there is a problem, not being able to read the left window, and not being able to drag across to open up. This problem occurs with many pop screens like this.

Are these 2 problems related.
My laptop is windows 8.1, Dell XPS 13, touch screen, high resolution (3200 x 1800).

Is this HD screen why I cannot resolve the above 2 typical problems.

#1. Go to the "Tools / Customize—›Options" page. Change the "Button size" to 24. The buttons may look bad until you close the dialog. If you upgrade to one of TurboCAD 2015 Pro editions, its buttons go up to 64 pixels and it has a "LTE" interface (similar what you have now).

#2. I would say go to Windows, "Control Panel / Display" and change to a smaller Text size.

Thanks for your suggestions.
1. I tried with the large button size, 24, as you suggested, but the buttons are only very marginally larger - see attached.

2. Re the window pane size, I also tried via Windows Control Panel / Display to decrease the font size, as I had already set it reasonably high, as the fonts were too small in excel, word etc. However, changing the text size down, made no difference, ie words are still cut, as per my image last post. I exited and re-started the CAD, but this changed nothing.

So, it seems, we are unable to control this within DoubleCad or outside of it.

The only thing I can think of is to try a different "16×9" resolution, if available.

3200×1800
2880×1620
2560×1440
2240×1260
1920×1080
