Disable OS Scaling of fonts in Windows build in LC7

Post by ewire » Thu May 21, 2020 11:44 am

I need to, for now, stop an app from responding the desktop scaling in MS Windows. Basically I'm maintaining a huge app and while i'm re-coding it I want to disable the current app from scaling fonts when printing to PDF etc and all areas of the app. I also want to stop it scaling popup locations etc which all go wrong if the desktop is scaled. It has to stay as LC7 as there are a lot of video transport controls, overlays, jumps and frame calculations that need the old style of video position that's in LC7. The app calculates GPS and many different GRID Zones linking footage with APIs for many different applications one being blending live Footage with 3D models

I'm sure there's a simple fix but a google and look on here yields zero?

Thanks
