Problem with Activity Editor

Post  ShortNorth on Mon 11 Sep 2017, 2:35 am

I've stated previously that I'm good at making routes, stock and structures, but have not been good at making activities. With the nearing release of the Huddersfield and Environs 1920 route, I thought I'd have a go at making a couple of sample activities to go with the route.

So, I fired up AE, after having not used it for a fairly long time, and was able to make basic activities, but when I went to add some Traffic, I found I couldn't - the necessary commands were covered over by another window overlap. I'm running everything else successfully under Windows 10.

I'm totally baffled as to how I can correct that - can anyone help ?

I've tried the original scrnsize.exe program and reset the AE Fix and the screen to the large size (1024x768), and it still comes up the same, and I've also used Ged's newer screensize program set at 1280x1024. Neither of these will allow me to move the overlapped section. See the section highlighted in red.




HELP

Regards, Brian

Hi Brian,
I've posted this over on ukts. Hope it helps.

You are not alone regarding the overlapping windows, and I too have never managed to find a solution. HOWEVER, you should find that other than adding 'hazards', all the necessary commands to create activities are still accessible. When you get that far, you'll find that the button for editing AI traffic is mostly covered, but there will be enough of an edge sticking out to allow access.

Hi Brian,

Sorry, mate, but that only works for the MSTS Route Editor. I've searched for, but been unable to find, similar settings for the Activity Editor.

Cheers,
Ged

Brian, have you tried increasing (and decreasing) your default screen resolution to see if any others give you a better display?

Hi Brian

As far as I recall, this problem is a function of having set the monitor screen to show text, apps etc at larger than 100% (under Display; Settings).

AH HA !!! That's it.

I have a widescreen laptop running at 1920 x 1080 - even though it is a 17" screen the text was too small to read comfortably, so when I set the laptop up, I set the text at 125%, and promptly forgot about it.

So, when I need to use Activity Editor, I have to drop the text back to 100%, do my activity work, then reset back to my 'normal' 125%.

Thanks for your help Martin.

Regards, Brian
