QuarkXPress 2015 on QHD display (windows 10)

Post by nonerev » 28 Feb 2016, 05:53

Hi,
This is my first post. I search but don't find an answer to my problem. I use QuarkXPress 2015 on my retina Mac without problem...
I've just received a Dell Precision notebook wich is a very performant laptop with a Quadro K1100m graphic adapter and a QHD (3200x1800) touch display.
I've downloaded the 3 day demo version this morning.
My problem is under Windows 10 x64 build 10586 QuarkXPress 2015 is just horrible! Everything is blurred. If I deactivate the scalling for hi-resolution screen the display is good but the windows do not appear complete!
Windows 10 normal settings:

Windows 10 with hi-resolution scalling disabled:

What can I do?

Hi nonerev,

Does the problem occur with all QuarkXPress dialogs and palettes?

1. In case of Hi- Def display setting, try by turning on ClearType Text and selecting the best text display option. It is available in Control Panel\ All Control Panel Items\ Display.

2. Try changing the display to 1920x 1080.

Thank you for your help,
appearance is better but far from perfect:

I suspect QuarkXPress does not support QHD on Windows even it is perfect under MacOS

Yes it appears with all dialogs, changing the main resolution is not a solution!
My trial end tomorrow…
