Many high-resolution monitors have a recommended scalage that is higher than 100%. When the Windows display scalage is set to 150% or 200%, for example, some dialog boxes in Tekla Structures can be unreadable, or they might not display some buttons.

For example, when the scalage is set to 200%, the Floor Layout dialog box becomes unreadable.

The workaround is to set High DPI scaling override to System. This can be set through the Tekla Structures icon on the desktop.

Right-click the icon, and select Properties > Compatibility > Change high DPI setting. Set the High DPI scaling override to System.

Using this setting allows Tekla Structures to be fully scaled to 100%. Other visuals in Tekla Structures can be slightly affected.
