MS Surface Pro Display Issues
#1
I just got around to installing SkyTools 3 on my MS Surface 4 Pro.  I was having the display issue with the maps that was noted in the support section on the SkyTools website (graphical overlay portion of the display is confined to the upper left of the map on all of the chart views).  I went through the entire troubleshooting section:

1.  Display driver is up to date.
2.  Turning the scaling off DOES solve the chart issue but makes the list view unreadable.
3.  No matter what other settings I try (resolution and font size combinations), if I fix the Chart view, the list view is unreadable.

Ideas?  I can send screen shots if desired.

The Surface has been an ongoing problem. This issue occurred with the original Surface but MS eventually fixed it.

Perhaps someone else using a Surface can chime in with a current solution?

I do have this from a Surface user as a means of making it work, although it isn't optimal: reset the scaling to 100% and the resolution to 1440 by 900

I yet have to receive an update from Microsoft to have more than one 3:2-resolution for the Surface Pro 4. Really MS?



In the past I used RegEdit to add more custom resolutions to the display, which after each update got wiped.


Recently I found an app from the Microsoft App Store which allows one to add custom resolutions easily.





Intel Graphics Command Center. Just install and make your own.



3:2 Resolutions:

2400×1600


2304×1536


2160×1440


2056×1368


2040×1360


1920×1280


1800×1200


1728×1152


1620X1080


1600×1066


1536×1024


1440×960 [best looking at 100% scale]


1368×912 


1200×800


1152×768


1080×720




Hope this helps.
