This guide explains why the font size in your Sage software may appear too large or small and recommends the best resolution settings to use.


There may be occasions where the font size in your Sage software appears small, or parts of a pop-up window go off screen.


Before you start

Let's take a look at the best settings to use for your monitor.  Before we start, you should know that changing the screen resolution will affect all programs on your computer.  If you're not sure about which settings to use, contact your IT support.

Close your Sage software before each of the steps below. Once each step is complete, re-open your Sage software and check the appearance.
