Text box dialog opens but text box collapsed - V7 + WIP (4K screen)

I think maybe I have reported this before, this is the way Text opens on my 4K screen.



I have to pull the box down to expose the text entry area. This is only on first opening, after that it seems to be OK, even between sessions, but it’s a bit disconcerting and I think it should be fixed. Hence the “Papercut” category.

Are you running multiple screens at different resolutions?
Assuming yes, what happens if you set them to the same resolution?

Nope, two 4K resolution screens, native resolution on both. 150% display scaling (the recommended value).

Any ideas for Mitch on this problem?

Hi Mitch,

Once you’ve correctly resized the dialog are you able to make it smaller again? Normally that shouldn’t be possible.


Guess we’re not ‘normal’ here… :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

(note I just posted another text edit box anomaly in a different thread)

Hmm, not sure what’s going on.

@Helvetosaur hey, I’ve been looking into this and can’t seem to reproduce it. Could you run SystemInfo and post it here? Also the output of TestSystemScreenInfo would be very helpful.

Hi @curtisw -

I can’t seem to make it happen anymore currently either… One-shot deal? Somehow got fixed in the last month?

Here are the two info files (from the 12.04 WIP) anyway, just in case:
MSH-SysInfo-WIP-19-04-22.txt (2.6 KB)
RhinoSystemScreenInfo-MSH-WIP-19-04-22.txt (904 Bytes)

@Helvetosaur great to hear it’s working now. One thing that it could be is changing the screen scale while Rhino is running, which I have yet to test.
