Display issue after latest update
« on: May 26, 2017, 02:55 AM »
Hi, after the latest update I noticed a small display issue with FARR.

Basically, after the first start the window looks like this:

After the first search, it resets back to normal, and then it works normally until FARR process is restarted.
It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious.

Hi, this happens on both of my machines, both are windows 10 x64
One of them has a high dpi monitor and scaling set to 200%
The other has "regular" dpi monitor and scaling set to 100%

And could I trouble you to show me a screenshot of "After the first search, it resets back to normal,"

No problem,

so, after I bring up FARR first time after it starts, I get the screenshot I posted above.
After a search (I didn't resize the window manually or anything, just typed in the search string), it looks like this:

Every subsequent launch of FARR brings up this:
