pop up dialogues not working properly

Hey Ray and Jason

Hope you both had a great Christmas?

Just wondering on something as I have just invested in ms surface running win 8.1 and in all the pop up dialogues look similar to the 2 I have attached....not sure what I need to do to adjust to accommodate?

Cheers

Jamie

Turn off "Large Fonts"... it appears that is throwing off the interface.

am assuming you mean in win 8.1 rather than dw?

I have been trying to get this to work...marginal improvement in the rs window but no joy in the repeat region side of things

Yes it is a windows setting... looks like it is still larger than default. I'm not sure where that is controlled in 8.1.

If you want to set up a connect meeting, contact me via Skype and I'll look into it with you.

Hey Ray

Just wondering if you might have plans to allow the popups to accommodate the usage of larger fonts etc? I can only set it to 125% without the problem happening but this is too small in other areas/programmes

cheers and have a wonderful 2015!

We may be able to update our interfaces to ignore larger fonts. We can't really update them to allow for the font size to change since Dreamweaver interfaces require a specified width and height.

If you want to contact me via skype tomorrow or the day after I'll investigate it with you and see if there is an easy solution.
