Display scale setting

This article is from before the rebranding to SelfGuide. Text and images can include the old product name ProductivityPerformer or its abbreviation PP.

Note: starting release 105 (early 2023), a custom display scaling is supported, see the release notes. This article is kept as information when working with older recorder versions.

On a computer, the display scale can be increased to make text, apps and other sizes readable. When recording an Instruction, a scale setting of 100% is required, otherwise step images won't contain the entire screen. When using an Instruction, the scale setting is not relevant.

Verify, and adjust if needed, the display scale setting before creating a recording:

  1. Open the computer Display settings, this can be done in several ways. For example: open the Start menu and search Display settings or press the right mouse button on the desktop and choose Display settings in the context menu
  2. Scroll to the section Scale and layout and verify the setting Change the size of text, apps and other items
