"Add Instruments" window too large on my PC screen

Post by ekihss » Mon Dec 16, 2019 4:02 am

I just updated my Sibelius Ultimate from 2019.9 to 2019.12 and the ribbon and keypad are huge. I can adjust the score size only. When I open the add instrument panel, it is so large that the close button is hidden and I can't drag it onto the screen. I am sure I can't be the only one with this problem. I have a Dell Inspiron laptop 64 bit OS. Screenshot is attached.

Yes, it's a big (excuse the pun) issue that's been reported and discussed quite a bit on the official Sibelius chat pages. (You do know that this is an unofficial site?)

No solution in sight last time I looked in over there, but it's a howler so I'm sure someone in Avid is working on it.

In Windows you can change the DPI settings. Make sure Sib is closed and then right click the sib icon on the desktop. Choose properties and hen compatibility and change the Hi DPI settings to system or system(enhanced).

Plus, you can grab the upper left or right corner of the window and drag it smaller. It should open smaller the next time.
