Ranorex studio resolution

Post by rexuser » Mon Jun 24, 2019 2:38 pm

I use external monitors. After I start Ranorex Studio, the resolution of Ranorex studio itself is wrong. It only happens on Ranorex Studio.

Hi rexuser,

Can you verify this monitor's DPI is set to 100%? Anything other than 100% can cause scaling issues such as this and automation issues (DPI not equal to 100% throws off where the item is actually located, causing many actions to miss their target).

I have te same problem when i take my laptop home an connect it to an external monitor. No matter what scaling i set in the windows display setting , -- it wont work.

The only solution what worked for me is to open Ranorex Studio FIRST and THEN connect the monitor to the laptop hte scaling works fine in Ranorex.

If I start Ranorex with already connected external monitor it will always show wrong scaling.

Maybe this helps (for further investigation :wink: )
