Is there any way to increase the font size in Picard?

The only solution I’ve found here is to increase the “Scale and Layout” of the monitor, but that screws up the whole layout of my monitors (I have 3), so I can’t do that (it’s already at 125%). The monitor is 2560x1440 (which also is a no-no for adjustment). What I’ve done so far is to move it closer (from about 75cm to 50cm), but with 3 monitors on a rack, that will eventually make my neck go up shit creak again (I had to use painkillers 3 times a day until I found the reason).

We all get older, with worsening eye-sight, and we all eventually upgrade our monitors. So this is a problem that will become more and more relevant. Can I suggest someone start thinking about a solution within the program itself? Something like being able to adjust the font size inside Picard?

There is a feature request for font scaling here.

In the meantime, you can use the workaround mentioned by @draconx and @InvisibleMan78 to scale only Picard’s UI instead of your entire monitor:

  1. Make a plain text file and name it startpicard.cmd
  2. Open startpicard.cmd with notepad
  3. Add the two lines:

    set QT_SCALE_FACTOR=1.15
    “<path to Picard>\picard.exe”

  4. Save the file
  5. Use startpicard.cmd to start Picard.

Thanks a bunch. 2.0 did it for me. :slight_smile:
