I've just upgraded to a 4K screen and when I run FEMAP 11.3.2, the icons appear extremely small. It's almost unmanagable! Does anyone know how to switch to larger icon sizes (if there are larger icons) or have any suggestions about how to increase the size so they display larger on a 4K screen?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Lucky you!. Click with the right mouse buttton in any free space in the menu areas of FEMAP and select CUSTOMIZE > OPTIONS and select LARGE ICONS, OK?.
Thanks!. But I will try before to adjust the scale of text & icons automatically from proper Windows, go to CONTROL PANEL > APPEARANCE > SCREEN and select the option to customize the scale and choose 125%, this is the best remedy, try it!.

There is an other failure when I work with more monitors. When I work with Femap on the 1. monitor and the 2. monitor on the right side, I can change the output case on the right-bottom corner of the Femap window only on the 2. monitor. I work with two computers and three monitors, and 2. monitor of Femap computer is the 2. monitor of my CAD computer. Usually I use this monitor to CAD, therefore when I want to change output case in this way I see nothing, only if I change source of this monitor:
We also have the same problem with Icon Size and recently we found one useful option in Windows 10 settings. It does not solve the problem with small icons in the model tree but looks much better in overall.
Open properties for Femap Shortcut or femap.exe file, go to Compatibility tab. Turn on option Override high DPI scaling behavior and set Scaling performed by System (Enhanced).
With large icons:
With windows compatibility option:
