I just found the answer here: http://superuser.com/questions/643443/how-to-set-systemwide-xp-style-dpi-sca ling-in-windows-8-1
In W 8.1 "Use Windows XP style DPI scaling" checkbox in the Custom DPI Setting dialog has been removed. So you need to do this for every program: Right-click on icon before opening program Properties tab Compatibility tab check "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings" box Works fine for FM7, 10 and Acrobat Pro :-} Ragnar From: framers-boun...@lists.frameusers.com [mailto:framers-boun...@lists.frameusers.com] On Behalf Of Ragnar Hanås Sent: Thursday, March 6, 2014 11:54 To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: fuzzy fonts in W 8.1 Hello, I just upgraded to a new computer with W 8.1 and installed FM 7.2 and FM 10. Both have fuzzy fonts in the documents AND file names in book files, text boxes, menus etc. I also noted that when I open a pdf in IE 11 the text is crystal sharp. But if I save this file and open it in Acrobat X, the fonts are fuzzy. Text in Office 2013 is sharp. So it seems the fonts are interpreted differently in different programs. I remember in XP there could be an issue with blurry fonts that was cleared by going to Display Properties -> Appearance -> Effects and then unchecking the top 2 boxes (transition effects and smooth edges). Any ideas how to change the settings in W8? I tried to uncheck smooth edges of screen fonts under performance options, but this had no effect. On my previous W7, the fonts in FM turned sharp when I selected Adjust for best performance, but then the whole display of Windows changes. Thanks, Ragnar Hanas Uddevalla Hospital Sweden
