GUI windows of some effects cutting off buttons

Recommended Posts

Please forgive me if this has been covered. I did search using different keywords but found nothing. As stated before I am compuilliterate, sorry.

I have version 3.22 but have had this issue with earlier version as well.

The setting window on some effects cuts off the bottons and/or text as in the following:


One of the effects boxes cuts off the buttons almost entirely and I have to guess which one is which.

I have a 17" laptop with a resolution of 1440 x 990. I have changed to different resolutions but to no use, some even made it worse. I have managed to live with it, but a solution would be nice also. :D

Also, if this is not the proper section for this question please move. I considered Genral Discussion, but it seemed more Trouble Shooting to me.

Thanks for any help.

This is the text size you've set with your copy of Windows. Just shrink that down, and you should be set. :-)

(Start > Control Panel > Display > Appearance. It's at the bottom.)


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Thank you DA for your time and prompt answer.

It appears to have been an error of my own ignorance and not understanding about having to update my plugins.

I went to the plugins thread while waiting and found that the "EdHarvey-Effects" was WAY different than what I had. I downloaded and installed the newer and now, all the GUI boxes I have checked so far are fine.

Again, thank you for your time. I do have my text set larger because I have trouble seeing, so I am sure that I will need to adjust this in the future, and it did not even occur to me to think of that. I will make a note of it and remember to check that in the future.

While it is sometimes easier said than done, applications should generally try to adjust to, and honor, the users settings. This is a type of accessability issue.

That is not always possible or practical, but in general applications should try to work with most possible Windows settings.

It sounds like things are working now that the plugins are updated... that is good.

Total hack.
