screen size (iMac user, if it matters)
« on: January 13, 2012, 09:35:37 pm »
I have enough trouble reading the CS and Modular MgV, but the ARP screen image is just confoundedly small. It is smaller than than 1/4 of my screen, and changing screen resolution does not change its size.

I cannot read the virtual silk screened labels.

I know where they're supposed to be, but it's been 30 years since I sold my three blue-faced 2600's (like a lot of other eegits).

Anyone know how I can make the image larger? Or is it defined by my pixel ratio, which is very tight.

But the sound is THE BOMB (if anyone says that anymore-- I'm old enough to have owned three ARP 2600's).

(Mac OS 10 Lion)

I would have to take a look what might cause this when I am back home, but I have an Imac with Lion Osx and this problem is not familiar with me. I would say it has something to do with the visual settings of your Imac.

I'm a new user and having a similar issue.

On my large 2560x1600 lcd screen (Win7), the 2600v window is smallish and fixed in size.
I would love to be able to enlarge it and increase readability.

Will post if I find the answer.

I have this issue as well, but I just use the Mac OS "control-scroll" to zoom. You can also set a keyboard command in Universal Access preferences when I need to edit patches.  It's pretty seamless in the workflow once you get used to it.

And yes, a lot of folks have mentioned the itsy bitsy UI elements, I hope Arturia are thinking about this as monitors are only getting bigger. (Logic also has some really tiny menu text so others are guilty of this too...)
