Hi there,

is there any way to screen size scaling in MD 2019 ? I'm using it on two different devices whit different screen resolutions however the the two lets call it "masterfiles" are stored seperatly. On the smaller screen I always see scrollbars and it looks like the setting from the other device.

any idea is appreciated

Thx Tom

    I'm a fellow user.

    Even when syncing, user preferences like font size, theme, extensions loaded, window positions, screen layout etc are not copied between machines and are thus independent. When you install Moneydance it has default settings and these are not based on screen resolution.

    I have different machines with vastly different screen sizes and resolutions. I have set up a small Netbook to use a completely different sized font (Menu: File --> Preferences on General Tab) and have also set up the summary page different on the device to only have the side bar and one column (Menu: File Preferences on the Summary Page Tab)

    So it is necessary to set up the screen preferences for each machine. Different themes may also work better on specific systems.

    Some Summary page widgets are fixed size, if I recall correctly Stock Glance is a user created widget.
