On some systems, there may be impairment of the display in the new pCon.planner, in that the operating control icons appear washed-out and blurry.


MS Windows uses scaling so that the rendering of icons in applications and windows is adapted to the screen being used. In the latest generation of monitors, which in some cases have very high pixel density (number of pixels per inch, DPI), this fact may cause the icons in pCon.planner to appear larger but less distinct.

Solution for Windows 7

It is possible to disable this automatic scaling process at the application level. This is how:

  1. Open the Windows Context Menu by means of a right-hand mouse click on the pCon.planner icon on the desktop.
  2. Select the Properties menu item.
  3. Go to the Compatibility tab.
  4. Check the Disable display scaling on high DPI settings option in the Settings area.

Note: Please note that disabling the automatic scaling may mean that the icons appear very small in pCon.planner.

Solution for Windows 10

The approach described above also works for Windows 10.

If this does not solve the problem, an alternative is to change the global display settings for your monitor:

  1. Right click on the desktop to access the Windows Context Menu.
  2. Open the Display Settings.
  3. You can then use the slider to Change the size of text, apps and other items. Set the value to 100%.
  4. Click Apply.

For many displays, 100% is not the recommends value from Windows. This setting will make pCon.planner’s user interface clearer, but icons and text may appear smaller. This will affect all programs and text on your system.
