Display truncates field labels

Post by imdwalrus »

I'm running a trial version of HelpWriter version 1.0.15 on Windows 8.1. My monitor is configured for HDMI with resolution at 1900 x 1200. Many of the HelpWriter field labels are displaying incompletely. An example screen capture is attached. What do I need to do to correct this?

This is an automated post. A real person will respond soon.

Thank you for posting, imdwalrus.

Did you remember to include the following?
  • 1. Product, version and build (e.g. Product: PowerShell Help Writer 2015, Version & Build: 1.0.9. Version and build information can be found in the product's About box accessed by clicking the blue icon with the 'i' in the upper right hand corner of the ribbon.)
    2. Specify if you are running a 32 or 64 bit version
    3. Specify your operating system and if it is 32 or 64 bit.
    4. Attach a screenshot if your issue can be seen on the screen
    5. Attach a zip file if you have multiple files (crash reports, log entries, etc.) related to your issue.
If not, please take a moment to edit your original post or reply to this one.

It looks as though your size settings have been modified in Windows. Can you confirm that your settings look like this:

If you're unsure how to get there, just right click on your desktop, select Screen Resolution, and then click on "Make text and other items larger or smaller":
