    Re: Splash screen distorted

    Thomas-M. Stein:
    I am not using any tools to make the ‘fixed’(?) fonts more readable. Maybe I have to mention that I am using Windows 7 with the Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000. With Windows default installation settings for that resolution I actually found everything too large for my taste, so I reduced the text size in Windows from ‘medium’ 125% (default) to ‘smaller’ 100% (under ‘Make text and other items larger or smaller’) but left the screen resolution at the max of 1920x1080.

    This also reduced the text size in PM but most icons remained the same size. See attached screenshots (left 100% right 125%). You probably already tried it but in your case you may want to try to increase the text size settings to 150%.

    Thanks Thomas.  I too have an Intel HD Graphics but the 4000.  After trying many combinations of text size and resolution I settled on the default 'medium' 125% text size at the 1600x900 resolution.  It was too much of a struggle to read config windows, address books, new message header lines, and even the content pane in the help screens in Pegasus Mail to stick with the 1920x1080 for daily use.

    Hi Brian,
    Just out of curiosity. Does your Windows give you the 150% text size option as well? I notice that PM reacts on these settings with increasing the text size however that might be unsuitable for Windows itself as well as all the other applications. Hmm
