Hi -

I'm using 3DXchange Pipeline 7 (7.4.2515.1) on a current Windows 10 machine.  It appears to not support Windows scaling... is that correct...?

Squinting,
-Will

You cannot increase the font size of 3dx on any OS.

@wiverson: Try the following (image is for CT8 but works the same for any software):

1. Right-click on a desktop icon for 3DXchange and select Properties.
2. Select the Compatibility tab and then click Change high DPI settings.
3. At the dialog that opens, under High DPI scaling override, check Override high DPI scaling behavior.
4. From the drop-down for Scaling performed by, select System (Enhanced).

This adjustment has worked for me. I have my desktop scaling at 125%, I believe that is the optimal value.

Got it - thanks.
Any ETA/thoughts on if/when the UI will be updated?

Probably never. 3dxchange is an ancient 32-bit program that, according to Kai in one of the RL webinars, is being phased out in favor of CC3 Pipeline. Trouble is, CC3 isn't even close to being able to replace 3dx at the moment, so here we are...

Huh.
I get the sense that I'm going to need to experiment around a bit with cc3, iClone etc to really figure out the best, uhh, pipeline.
Hmm.

Peter (RL) has said in this forum that the future of 3DXchange is still under discussion. Peter is usually more reliable...
