Hello, I try to get a grip of Wireshark as I'll be using it in my work and I've encountered a problem I can't fix: there's a really tiny font in flow graphs under a Statistic and Telephony menu, nearly unreadable. More than that, even when I've been trying using the windows magnifying tool, it looks that there's really low resolution on that. Any tinkering with the font size in Preferences gives no results and I can't imagine working on the day to day basis like that. Is there any workaround this problem? Please help

Ps. The system I'm using is Windows 10 Enterprise 64-bit, WhireShark Version 3.0.2, the screen resolution on my laptop is 1920x1080 as recommended, although I've got also a separate monitor in work, which details I'm not able to verify right now as I'm home, but I'm gonna do this tomorrow. The laptop is ThinkPad T480 with 14-inches screen and GPU Intel UHD Graphics 620. The problem on both monitor and laptop is similar. Ps 2. The resolution of outer monitor is 1280x1024.

Using the latest release may help here. Otherwise we have no clue about what your setup looks like, so it's impossible to give targeted advice. Amend your question with every relevant detail on OS, versions, screen, etc.

I'm not sure if I'm supposed to edit original question or just comment, so I'm doing both: The system I'm using is Windows 10 Enterprise 64-bit, WhireShark Version 3.0.2, the screen resolution on my laptop is 1920x1080 as recommended, although I've got also a separate monitor in work, which details I'm not able to verify right now as I'm home, but I'm gonna do this tomorrow.

For posterity: the problem halfway solved. I noticed that in Windows display settings I've got size of text recommended 150% on laptop and that's how it had been set. When I changed this option to 149%, the text in graph was no longer blurry, but it changed the global settings for outer screen as well where it was originally 100%, so it was unacceptable. So it looks like it is some Windows flaw. Anyway, I went into Wireshark properties and in Compatibility tab I marked the "Override high DPI scaling behaviour. Scaling performed by: System (Enhanced)" and it works. The font size is still not adjustable, but at least it's clear and readable
