Can I change Icon Size?

Postby wb9tpg » Thu Oct 11, 2018 1:43 pm

I'm running Vcarve Desktop 9.5 on Windows 7 and I find that my eyes are not as good as they were when I was younger and I would like larger Icons. I looked through the options menu and don't see anything in Vcarve to do that.

I tried going into Windows and set the View settings to Large Icons but it didn't have any effect on Vcarve. Is there any trick to getting Vcarve to display larger Icons?

The icons are fixed in size. You can change the overall resolution in windows which will have the effect of making the icons (and everything else bigger). 1024x768 resolution will be bigger than 1920x1200 for example. You could also try changing the scaling size in windows if you're on a version that supports it.

At the end of the day we nearly all end up with spectacles though. In my early 40's I had perfect vision but now I'm in my early 50's I have to use spectacles for computer work and reading.

That worked. I had to play around with the setting for VMware Fusion to get the client resolution to stick but it's working nice now.

I have a large 4k resolution screen and use a 3840x2160 resolution on a Nvidia Quadro card. At 100% item size it becomes indeed unreadable but with Win10 set to 200% item size (text, icons etc.) it works very well and is a perfect environment for CAD and CAM software. I am not sure though if Win7 can change the item size.
