PBI Desktop Zoom

Hello everyone,

 

So my PBI Desktop was working alright until yesterday, but today when I started it everything was suddenly zoomed up.

 

Is it something anyone else is experiencing as well and is there a solution to it?

Is there something in the March 2023 update or is it a bug?

 

Would love your thoughts on it and here are the screenshots.

Hello @Padycosmos  & @HughLa 

So I did a bit of both.

 

The moment I reduce the font size, PBI works alright, but it reduces the font size everywhere on my machine.

So I had to zoom the display settings to 125% from the settings, in order to get everything back to normal.

 

Don't know, if its a PBI thing or a windows thing, but it was working absoutely fine until yesterday, when I was using the Feb 2023 update.

 

Thank you for responding.

This is happening to me too. Since the "Green" update. 

Hi @Geilisa,

 

Try changing the settings of screen from the settings of the PC.
Its quite annoying to get the right fit but I think it is the only way.

 

Hope it helps.

I already used the video to "fix it". Dont enjoy having to shrink my entire computer's text settings. But it is a good solution for now. 

This problem has been permanently fixed in the March 2023 version of Power BI Desktop. I have installed it and increased the text size without any problem.

Hi @visheshjain 

 

Double check that your display settings scale is set to 100% on your PC.

 

I have found that this is most of the time the issue.
