Any suggestions for enlarging the resolution on my program preferences screen? it's so tiny i can't make any changes. searched the forum and came up with increasing the windows screen setting to 500% which makes other programs wonky, but seems to help in datacad. any other suggestions?

I find the same for many dialog boxes (smart door, window, xref manager) appears ok in v19.
I believe most all settings are the same.

The latest Windoze updates have changed the game-rules for high-DPI displays and the handling of display DPI in general. We are aware and aggressively working to address it.

It would, but there have also been many, many changes in v20 to address high DPI displays. Over 100 of DataCAD's dialog boxes were changed to improve their usability. For most of them, even their size can be customized to suit your display in the Preferences dialog.
