Postby gets » Thu Jul 06, 2017 10:48 am

Is there a way to increase the size of the ATC messages?
Thanks.

I run ATC on a 19" touchscreen and the text lines could do with being larger as at times i'm touching the wrong message due to the small size

I have a 27" monitor and it's way too small for my old eyes.

Try this works like a charm.

Thanks to DukeSan27 for the original post.

Thanks, Mick. Works like a charm in P3Dv4 to enlarge size of ATC Menu text. Now, if only someone could figure a way to permanently change text of the messages, or background color of the window...

Changing the DPI settings of your monitor will increase the size of all text in the ATC window. This can be changed in Windows display settings.

Problem with that is that some app GUI's may not show up correctly. It was an issue when we tested REX E back in 2012.

Prepar3D's UI is designed to work with different DPI settings. We ship the source of all our Scaleform UI windows as well so if additional customization is desired these can be modified, including the size of individual text items as well as UI background colors.
