Bugs in PSP 2018

Postby mesquite » Wed Feb 06, 2019 9:09 pm

With Windows 10 Home version 1809, THE DISPLAY IS SET TO 150%:
When editing a picture, bringing up Adjust windows:
[1] White Balance window - is small and does not display everything, it must be scrolled, it cannot be enlarged.
[2] Brightness/Contrast window - the Preview on Image checkbox does not uncheck and the preview cannot be turned off to compare before and after settings.

These bugs do not appear when the display is set to 125%.

I hope that these bugs do not appear in future versions. It would be nice to have a correction to 2018.

Bitter in 2018

I have unfortunate news: many apps fail the enlarged font test. I labored for years to get Mozillla's management to fix Firefox. Then I gave up. My advice: set enlargement to 125% and use that, since 125% works.

Don't expect any app-maker to switch to fontsize-tolerant design any time soon. They just don't care about old farts that need large print to see properly.

I cannot use some of the application programs on my PC without 150% magnification, so I will continue to use that zoom ratio. Corel should stop asking me to buy the latest version of PSP because I will not be paying for a newer version until they fix the 150% zoom problem. Are you listening, Corel? Probably not.

That's interesting, because PSP 2018 has large icons available, and PSP 2019 has large icons and large text available. I'm using the large size icons right now in PSP 2018. Have you tried PSP 2019? Is it still too small?

These are not rhetorical questions. For years I tried to make Mozilla put enlargeable fonts and icons on Firebird/Firefox. I gave up and created Aeon Big (48px icons) and Aeon Large (64px icons). All gone now, of course. But the new changes in PSP might be just what you need.
