I'm running My Movies version 5.25 client and server, just downloaded and installed on 12-23-2019, on a Windows 7 64 bit system. I'm now seeing overlapping in the DVD cover area and the list of actors, I have attached images. Previous versions had the covers and to the right would list the actors, now the actors list is on top of the cover artwork. I've looked at the options within the program and even restarted both the program and system and still have this problem. How can this be fixed?

Thanks.

Where do I set the DPI size? Is this the systems DPI? According to my system 125% is the default. Screen info images attached.

Yes, @binnerup is talking about the system DPI setting. 125% shouldn't be a default. 100% is the only setting My Movies will support; unfortunately, if it is set to anything else, you will get strange artifacts in the display of text and graphic items, which you've already noticed.

Well my screen is 23 3/4" wide by 15" tall, so it's more of a widescreen, so that's why it might have a default of 125%... but that's just a guess.

I guess some monitor manufacturers set the DPI setting to something other than 100%. I didn't know that. I have a 24" widescreen monitor as well, more than 2k pixels wide and yes, stuff looks a bit small at 100%. But I like it that way! Laughing

As both I and binnerup said, My Movies won't display correctly unless you set that to 100%. It's a feature that can't easily be changed. Others have asked for support for variable DPI but I don't think the team has it on their "must-do" list.

Cheers,
