    Cool Small Numbers, no space or blank --> difficult to hit

    when i try to type a number i often delete for example the " c " from accident,
    and then the drawing explodes!

    perhaps: please make the font bigger, or not double row, or lock the unit somehow, or ...

    Click image for larger version.

    Just delete everything in the box, add you number and the default units are re-applied.

    Hi reinhard,

    What Windows Display Scale factor are you using with your 4K screen?

    Hi Phil
    i have a 32" screen @ 2560*1440

    the "Windows Display Scale factor" i think in the screensettings is 100%

    do you have a tip what to change for xara specific?

    That appears low. My 32" monitor is set to 3840 x 2160 (Recommended) and 150% (Recommended)

    @PhilM, if changing the UI, can you accommodate those of us who use 3 d.p.?

    Data entry fields are generally a mess:
    • Table Tool needs interactive sliders for all the size fields.
    • Skew angle is set relative and would vastly benefit with a slider too.
    • The Rotation one would gain with a slider when the objects show <Many>; far better than trying to remember to use a hash.
    • In passing the Feather slider feathers a new Table in the design but it does not render as such as you are handling borders as SVG yet failing with feathering the cell fills.
    • The Text tool is similarly bereft, apart from Font size.

    @reinhard,

    Now that Designer is "DPI aware" you can change the Windows Display Scale factor (in Settings | System | Display) to any value that you like. The program will scale it's UI elements up and your drawings will still be at the full resolution of the monitor. (All "DPI Aware" apps will do the same.)

    Try 125% first and see if that works for you. If not try 150% and larger values. You can change it while Designer is running to see the changes immediately.

    fwiw - I use 125% on my 2560 x 1440 and 200% on the 3840 x 2160

    I don't know why they call it common sense, there's rarely that much around when you need it....
