Zoom to more than 150%

Post by AnthonyTower » Sat Sep 25, 2021 12:18 am

Would it be possible to zoom the interface to higher values like 200% or 300%?
Hopefully without having to rewrite the skinning module?
Cheers

In earlier versions of VM it was possible to zoom in more but they've since limited it, for some reason.

My screen resolution is 2169 x 1440 and if I set Windows display scale to 100% and check the Zoom Interface 2X setting and set VM Zoom to be 150% then a module takes up about 80% of the screen height, which is too magnified to use in practice.

If I set Windows scale to the maximum 225% then it's so zoomed in that I can only see about 1/3 of a module at a time.

So I'm wondering how much zoom you are after?

I was after a zoom setting that would bring modules, for example the 2500 and SEM modules, to their actual real-life size.

Thank you shoekah for pointing out the 'Zoom Interface 2X' check-box in the Settings dialog.

With 2X checked and the Zoom menu at 150% the modules are more or less the same size they would be in real-life.

Paired with a 50inch 4K monitor you have a much more true-to-life view of what a modular synth looks like, even permitting the screen to be a bit further away in order to accommodate a row of MIDI Rotary Encoder controllers, for example the Behringer BCR 2000, followed by a keyboard or two.
