High-DPI support

Last reviewed version: 2.16.4


Icons and/or text is displayed too small in AquaEdit/AquaView specifically on high resolution screens with Display Scale at a higher value than 100%.


AquaEdit and AquaView do support high-DPI displays, but for the display to be correct the user most systems will require the user to enable compatability mode on AquaEdit and AquaView.


Find the programs .exe in the folder where AquaSim is installed, usually c:\program files\aquastructures\aquasim.

Right click the application name (e.g aquaedit.exe) and select “Properties”. Under the “Compatibility” tab click “Change high DPI settings”.
