      Description

      Can you tell me if the latest Qt GUI library has been optimized for the 1920x1080 display resolution ?

      I received the reply below from a developer - I have this problem with certain applications only.

      Thanks!

      Thanks for the detailed bug report, but I'm afraid this is beyond my control, as layouting of the dialogs is not handled by Mnemosyne directly, but rather by the GUI library we use (Qt). Mnemosyne 2.2 will include a later version of Qt, so hopefully the issue is fixed there...

      Mnemosyne display issue with 1920x1080 Dell laptop

      Bug description:
      Hi, attached is a screenshot of 2 dialog boxes with text distortions. I'm running Mnemosyne 2.1 Portable, launched from the PortableApps.com Menu. Most other screens in the program appear to be fine.

      My Windows 7 text size is 170% (the default is 125%, specified by Microsoft). If I go below 150% - 170%, the text on my screen is uncomfortably small and difficult to read. However, lowering my text size in Windows 7 does not resolve the problem.

      I believe the issue is due to a lack of optimization for HD displays (in this case, 1920x1080). Most of my other programs have no such issues.

      My laptop is a Dell Precision M6600
