High-DPI monitor support (Windows)
- Live Versions: 9-10
- Operating System: Windows
High-DPI mode on Live 10
Live 10 has High-DPI support for Windows 10 computers by default. This can be toggled in the Preferences under Look/Feel → Enable HiDPI mode.
Auto Scale Plug-in Window
Certain HiDPI plug-ins may require you to manually disable scaling (via the context menu) in order to use them on HiDPI screens. (Note: This feature does not apply to VST3 devices, which are auto-scaled by default).
There are two ways to do this.
1. Right click on the plug-in title bar and deselect "Auto-Scale Plugin Window".
2. Right click on the plug-in the Live Browser and deselect "Auto-Scale Plugin Window".
Using Live 9 on high-DPI monitors
Live 9 does not have proper high-DPI support therefore Live 9's GUI may appear blurry or out-of-focus if the Windows Zoom settings are set to anything other than 100% (Windows 7) or something other than “Smaller” (Windows 10, 8)
- right-click on the Live shortcut in the Start Menu and choose "Properties" from the list.
- go to “Compatibility”.
- tick “Disable display scaling on high-DPI settings”.
- "Apply" these settings.
Note: Plug-in GUI windows will appear small when using this method.
