Hi Bob,

I've had the same "interface for ants" problem for some time now with my SP3 (starting with Windows 8.1), but I just found a solution in this guide: http://www.danantonielli.com/adobe-app-scaling-on-high-dpi-displays-fix/

Requires a single registry edit addition, then copying a text file he provides and renaming it to eQUEST.exe.manifest and placing alongside the eQUEST.exe executable (for me in C:\Program Files (x86)\eQUEST 3-65).  No rebooting required.

The result is on par with what I'm used to on 1920 x 1080 displays & similar.  Not quite large enough to make touchscreen navigation super easy, but definitely much more navigable with a mouse.

This should work to fix other scaling problems on a per-application basis for other platforms/software as well.

Subject: [Bldg-sim] eQuest Toolbar Icons too Small

I am using a MS Surface Pro 4 with has a rather fine resolution at 2736 x 1842.  This has apparently caused the toolbar at the top of the eQuest program to show very small icons, and available adjustments do not help.  Is anyone aware of a way to increase the icon size on the toolbar?

Thank you,
