Issue/Introduction

Open Workbench has some display issues when used on a system with a high DPI setting (this is normally related to having a very high resolution) that uses scaling.

Resolution

Override the application scaling settings:

  1. Find the 'Open Workbench' .exe (in a default installation, it can be found in 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Open Workbench\bin\npWBench.exe'
  2. Right-click on npWBench.exe and select 'Properties'.
  3. Click on the 'Compatibility' tab.
  4. Click on the 'Change high DPI settings' button.
  5. Enable the option "Override high DPI scaling behavior. Scaling performed by:" checkbox, and select "System (Enhanced)".
  6. Restart Windows.
  7. Open OWB.
