I currently have a 28" Samsung 4K monitor with windows scaling set to 225% yet FSecure's UI window is so very small i can hardly see it
Could we have a UI scaling update ASAP please.
thanks for this information.
I have a 14" notebook with 1920x1080 full-HD screen. I am bespectacled, so I bought that notebook for the large viewing angle IPS LCD screen technology, not for the high resolution. In order to use the screen comfortably, I run the notebook with Windows 8.1 and at native fullHD resolution, but set the Windows font enlarge feature at 150% (the largest available).
When the F-Secure PSB 10.50 user interface is opened, it ignores the above mention Windows DPI enlargement settings: the displayed text is tack sharp, but as small as an ant's gonads.
In the F-Secure GUI you can click "Update" and then a smaller window will pop up, which shows the virus definition database download progress. That F-Secure window properly observes the Window DPI enlargement setting, the text appears larger sized and the letters in it are smooth and nicely shaped.
However, In the F-Secure GUI you can also click "Settings" and then the advanced configuration interface window will appear. That another F-Secure window actually uses the Window DPI enlargement setting, so the text appears larger sized. The letters, however, have very rough shape and look ugly, because F-Secure PSB appears to ignore the font-smoothing technology, which Windows 8.1 offers for software to better support enlarged DPI scenarios.
Therefore, F-Secure has a three-way mind split within its PSB product, when it comes to handling high-resolution displays properly and consistently. I would hope this highly visible cosmetic issue can be fixed!
Thanks in advance, Yours Sincerely: Tamas Feher, 2F 2000, Hungary.
I've pointed this out to the product team and this is going to be something that they will look into. Thanks for bringing this up
This is apparently a feature in the new 16.1 release, but nothing has changed.
@toastpaint Really? Couldn't find any changelog.
There are still scalability "issues", at least at screens with resolutions higher than 1080p. But it is alright on my Surface Pro 3 (2.160 x 1.440). Still wish there would be a "better touch experience" and pen support. Especially Freedome is not fully compatible to pen inputs.
F-Secure SAFE and F-Secure Internet Security support scaling since version 16.1. The support is limited so that only scaling to 100%, 200%, 300%, and so on works. If your Windows scaling is set to 225%, then our GUI would scale to 200%.
