It's still happening.. this is a problem when requiring to log in and you can not see/read the text in the log in box!

I will re-post my message so this can be upgraded to a problem and possibly some one  Flexcan look into it.

This just happened to me on a new computer..

SmartLink did not automatically connect. A window popped up and in the middle was a a postage stamp size box. With a magnetizing glass I was able to see it was a log on box. and was able to log in but this is not a satisfactory situation.

This laptop has a high resolution screen 3840 x 2160 with the recommended scaling of 250%, on Windows 10.  The everything else with  SmartSDr scales fine. The problem is with this log in box for SmartLink which is a tiny little box in the middle  of a larger box. This box is not programmed to respect proper scaling. (The outline of the larger box would have make it the right size if the log in box was to fill it.)

    I had the same problem on my Surface Pro. I have a pair of magnifying reading glasses and was able to get through it after several tries.

    I have MacBook 2012 & iPad 9.5 inch and SmartLink log in box is easily seen and read, nicely sized.  No log in issues at all.

    Hi Gene,

    This is a totally different situations with no comparison to the problem.

    This applies to SmartLink on  a windows computers with hi resolution screens.

    I also have an iPad and it works fine but it is using a different OS with a special version of software.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
