Blurry and/or Tiny

  • After upgrading from NitroPDF Pro v11 to v13, I noticed the interface and documents were blurry.  I changed the DPI settings as specified below and that helped, but not 100% - still a little blurry interface and documents compared to other PDF programs.
  • After the DPI changes, text throughout the interface of Nitro PDF is too small to read on my 17 inch laptop screen.
  • Increasing the display scale to 125% in Windows Settings helped with reading the interface, but then the printer dialog/print preview partially appears below my screen. I had increased the display scale when using version 11 (and the printer dialog didn't appear off the screen), but was hoping I wouldn't need to do this for version 13 and that printer dialog would still be fully visible as in version 11.

I consider NitroPDF to be a premium product and have recommended it for years as an IT Professional.  I will keep using the program when I need premium features, but it is disappointing that the program doesn't have more premium display options for better usabiliity.

Thank you for any suggestions you might provide, and I hope the issues are addressed better in an upcoming revision of NitroPDF.


My version of NitroPDF:

Windows Edition    Windows 11 Home
