Changing my windows setting worked, but...
Is there a way to do this so that things don't get screwy on other computers other than my own? Forcing the end user to adapt to filemaker is not really a solution to the issue. I have a database that we've been using since FM8 through FM12 with no major issues. (minor format and script issues when we migrated to FM12)
But now that Im using FM13 everything is wack.
Is there some kind of script or checkbox in FM13 that can overide users monitor DPI settings?
Not that I know of.
How, precisely, does this create issues for your users? (I'm curious as small differences in layout size don't strike me as a major problem...)
You may want to add the answer to that question to the issue report where this is discussed or in a post to http://www.filemaker.com/company/contact/feature_request.html
Other than everything looks like crap. I suppose it's not a big issue. But I'll say this, I've tried every windows trick I can concerning DPI settings and anything outside of the default setting causes issues in both Filemaker and the Databases within. Filemaker icons and fonts look blurry and all portals and lines are funky.
I don't understand what had to change between FM12 and FM13 to make this an issue.
I've tried running in various windows modes, changed "Disable display scaling in High DPI mode", tried differnt themes, disabled Windows DPI mode...all of it does nothing.
The only solution appears to be...
If you want to use Filemaker 13 on a windows platform you must view it under default DPI setting.
I must say, this sucks.
This is information that is best posted to the issue report thread where it can be brought to the attention of the FIleMaker Techs that monitor Report an Issue.
