Installer Prep Screen looks poor on 4K Display

Postby SteveDude » Tue Aug 28, 2018 3:39 am

I build all my setups on a box with a display settings set of 2048x1152. When the setups are run on 4k displays the dialogs look fine but the installation preparation display bar text is way to large. See screen capture...

I think this dialog has been neglected since its first creation, no matter of screen resolution.
It's too small for it's content, at least when the start language isn't English.
In most other languages the displayed string doesn't fit into its label.

Right after this dialog there is another one, which is displayed only for a short time, and its content is always in English.
Best regards

Since it's the first dialog displayed and the first impression of your software by a user, it should be put on a priority list. For now I'm just using a very short string.

Got the same problem, actually in IA X7 the text is as it has always been, but in IA X8 the problem occurs. As SteveDude says, it gives a bad first impression.
