Wire Aligment with Different Screen Resolutions

Solved!
Go to solution

I've noticed that block diagram wire positions/alignments can change, sometimes significantly, in moving to monitors with different resolutions.  There's a ton of information about maintaining proportions on the front panel as resolution changes, but I can't find how to mitigate the issue with wires on the block diagram.  Does anybody know how best to handle this?

 

Thanks!

I've never noticed the block diagram change due to screen resolutions.  I have seen issues like this when changing system fonts.  For instance, going from XP to Win7 meant going to Aero font, which is a bigger font than whatever XP used for its default system font.

That is what I've noticed as well.

 

The solution to this is to define the blockdiagram fonts within the LabVIEW.ini to be specific font rather than a system font.

Something like

BDFont="Tahoma" 13

You both are right - the issue was that one computer is running Aero, which has a system font of Segoe UI 9 point, and the other is running a Windows Basic theme which has a system font of Tahoma 8 point.  Thanks for the help!
