windows 8 Font number drop down menu not showing in Evernote 5.7.2

Recommended Posts

Hi, I recently upgraded to Evernote 5.7.2 (the latest version) and I am using a Toshiba Satellite laptop with a 4K screen. For some reason the drop down menu for the font number (when I want to change the font size) does not show up so I can see the numbers to change the font size. Can anyone help me change it? Apparently there are settings in Windows 8 to make it so I can see the drop down menu, but I don't know what it is. I hope someone can help me. Thanks. Regards, Deanna.

I'm not sure if my original attachments were clear enough to show the problem. Here's another attempt with some annotations that should help.

Hi, I just wanted to say that I have fixed the problem.

 

For anyone else who has a 4K screen and runs across this problem or even have a 4K screen and the icons are super tiny and need to get them bigger, this is what I did. Please note that you will lose some of your resolution with this fix and you won't be running at 4K on your 4K screen.

 

Go to the Control Panel / Appearance and Personalization / Make text and other items larger or smaller

 

Select "smallest 100%". It will ask you to log out. Log out and log back in.

 

Go back to Control Panel / Appearance and Personalization / Adjust screen resolution

 

Your screen resolution will probably read something like "3840 x 2160". Change it to a lower resolution that still works with your screen size. I chose "1920 x 1080".

 

My drop down menu for the font size came backk and the icons were also back to a normal size.

 

Please note, you are now running at a lower resolution, so you no longer have the crispness of the 4K screen.

Same issue, different ultrabook. Lenovo 3200 x 1800 display on a Yoga 2.

Not willing to give up my resolution for the font dropdown box, so I'm hoping that the Evernote team can fix this issue relatively soon.

I'll drop them a note and refer to this thread since langshipley did such a great job of explaining and illustrating the items - thanks much for that.
