Mechanical browser component panel

Hi,
I would prefer to run Bricscad with Linux but the one thing stopping me at the moment is there seems to be a scale issue of the mechanical browser component panel (see image)
Its very large and unusable and I can't find a way to change the size. I have contacted support but yet to get a response.
Does anyone know how?

  • Do you have a HiDPI Monitor and use (uneven) screen scaling ?
    (Like I do and prefer 175%, instead of recommended 200%, on my 4k 24")

    Is it better when you try 50%, 100% or 200% ?

    Nevertheless there are still lots of UI Elements on Linux that are not HiDPI ready
    or pixel size hard coded. Like panel top texts and such things.

  • Thanks Michael,
    It's a strange one this, my desktop with a 4k monitor is ok but it's my laptop (also 4k 15") where the problem is. I also prefer 175% and have tried the other sizes without success.
    So I turned the interface scaling to Normal which fixed it, but I then had to reduce the resolution to 1920x1080 in order to see everything clearly.
    At least I know what the problem is, thanks again!
    Wish I never bought a 4k 15" laptop, just not worth the extra cost and power consumption.

  • This is not a general Linux problem, at least not with V21, and I do not remember having seen this problem before. But I do experience scaling issues with some Interface elements, and I have not been able to find a remedy so far (see attached screenshot).
    Maybe you should try to copy /home/khad/Bricsys/BricsCAD/V21x64/en_US/Support/default.cui (supposed this is what you are using) to a safe place and overwrite it with the original version from /opt/bricsys/bricscad/v21/UserDataCache/Support/en_US.

  • I also get the scaling issue as you have shown, but I will try the original cui also. Thank you !

  • No use to follow my advice, Michael's answer is correct.
    This seems to be a problem not only on Linux, if I change display scaling to anything other than the recommended 125% on my windows box, BricsCAD's GUI suffers badly.

    Okay thank you, I haven't experimented with windows versions but good to know.
