The transform editor window in newer beta releases of
apophysis does not display properly with increased
DPI/large fonts under windows display settings.... I'm
not sure if I've explained this properly but I have a
screenshot posted at
http://www.deviantart.com/view/25580080/ . The tabs are
covered by the image in the top right corner, I realize
this can be fixed by changing display settings but for
someone with poor eyesight it's a real inconvenience
because it makes it difficult to see things at high res.

I would really appreciate it if this was fixed in the
next release. Thank you!

    yes, I know of this problem, but unfortunately I haven't found what is causing it yet...

    Hi, I would just like to comment on this display problem too. I have DPI set at 125% (1920x1200 monitor)and I am not able to see any of the tabs in the editor window. And as well cannot even see the linear transform line (which means I cannot change this in any way on any fractal). I was a beta tester for the original Apophysis and this problem cropped up there as well. I wrote to Mark and he immediately fixed it. How, though ... well I have no idea. Perhaps he might remember the solution.

    I sure hope you can fix this -- monitor resolution grows and with it our eyesight fades and needs a higher dpi :-)

    Has any progress been made on this? Having an entire VM for just Apophysis is not optimal :)
