Can anyone tell me how to change the UI Text size or button size?

The text on the buttons in mine is bigger than the buttons and is clipped on some. Making the description unreadable fully.:help:

Never mind. I had the windows font turned up to 120 dpi. Normally it is at 96 dpi.

My bad!!! :D

i posted this a while ago when i had the same problem. to compensate for setting my resolution to its max i had to change the windows font size to large and apparently that affects the lightwave buttons as well. i only have instructions for vista, but if you right click on the desktop and go to personalize, on the left is a sidebar and it says adjust font size (DPI). i'm sure its probably the same process in XP.

Thats OK, thanks for the effort.

I have the same problem. When you set the resolution to its max the fonts are a little bit tiny. I wish you could adjust the fonts inside of programs so that I could keep my icon fonts big.

Oh well, I guess you can't have everything. :grumpy:

Having this issue with a new install of LW 9.6. The button fonts are too big. I'm on windows 7 here and there appears to be no way to make the font size any smaller. The 3 options in Win 7 are Small (what I have it on), Medium, and Larger, with 96dpi text. Any other suggestions?

Think I solved this problem on Windows 7 with LW 9.6
