    Hi all,

    I installed Windows 8.1 on my 2014 Macbook Pro today, and downloaded the Solidworks straight away. To my dismay formatting, text size, icons and images all appear to be very small indeed. I have tried changing the resolution options but have not managed to find a solution yet. Anyone any thoughts at all?

    Many thanks,

    TheCaptain95

    Have you tried changing the scaling to 200%?

    Right click on anywhere in Desktop, click Screen Resolution, and click the link to make text larger or smaller. Set scaling to use one scaling level for all displays and use 200%.

    Solidworks does not like high resolution scaling. It works the best at 100%.
