text is reallllllllllly small

February 5, 2007 | 2:18 pm

Anyone notice that Max is almost unreadable on these higher resolution widescreen monitors that are becoming the norm? I’m at 1920×1200 and it’s tiny as can be? Will Max 5 address this or am I stuck using the Windows’ magnifier?

thanks for reading, jamez

Yes. It’s awful. I hope Max 5 has some dynamic workspace scaling, OpenGL, SOMETHING! Selecting All and changing the font size and expecting the fix width functions to work, for example, is a joke.

yeah, well, anyone from cycling care to comment if we can expect some changes in max 5 with how the UI is handled, in particular if text size will be made dynamic.

I know PD has a crude text resizing function that seems to work very well, but it should spread out the relative distance between each object in a perfect ratio.

Yes, you can expect a couple of UI changes, as discussed previously on
the forums.
