How do I Enlarge Font Size for Dynamics GP

I get this question a LOT and I personally wish I had a good and clear answer. It’s been asked widely online over the years.

Since things change, I am asking again.

How do we effectively increase the font size for Dynamics GP text? What #lifeHacks do you use to make this easier?

Thanks,

I refer for those questions most of the time to my two fav MVP’s:

Steve Endov wrote about it years ago: https://dynamicsgpland.blogspot.com/2016/09/fix-dynamics-gp-scaling-and-font-size.html

David Musgrave extensively wrote about it too: https://winthropdc.wordpress.com/2016/11/08/gppt-using-microsoft-dynamics-gp-with-high-dpi-on-high-resolution-monitors/

I use a combination of various settings, depending on what platform is used to run GP (i.e. local client or remote desktop published GP, TS on Win 2016 / 2019).

Every Windows version is a little different in behavior and as Microsoft’s own acknowledgement, there is no single solution.

Hope that helps,

Install GP Power Tools and use it to fix the font scaling and enable bitmap scaling via the Dex.ini Settings window.

All explained on my blog (as highlighted by B@) https://winthropdc.wordpress.com/2016/11/08/gppt-using-microsoft-dynamics-gp-with-high-dpi-on-high-resolution-monitors/

PS: I also fixed the screen output memory for report writer ages ago when you asked and now have fixed Microsoft’s bad implementation of their “fix” (just maximizing).

Thanks for the feedback - maybe I am just doing something wrong. Does anyone have a video showing this and how it changes for them?

Every company could just brand a couple dozen of these for their employees?

Hi Shawn
