Sizing on Ansys Workbench 19.2

    • kierank

      I got the 19.2 student version to download fine, but when I run the workbench, the tabs and fonts are so small. How do I fix this? I have added a picture of the problem:

      It seems you are using 4K resolution display. ANSYS applications do not scale well on 4K resolution yet.

      You can try this workaround:


      A workaround that others report as working fine is to reduce the resolution (try 1920 x 1080) and then also adjust your windows scaling settings, reduce the scaling to 100%. 


      Reboot/log out and log in after making the resolution changes. 


      Also try on the ANSYS Product (Workbench in this case) shortcut and select Properties. Under Compatibility select "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings".

      Hey, I am using Mac-pro Windows OS. I fixed this problem by changing properties of RunWB2.exe. Please have a look a the picture below.nn

      Steps to fix this are explained in this video too:

      Suggestion from @labyrinth01 does the job. The issue however still persists, if e.g. DESIGN MODELER is opened from WORKBENCH. Even if file properties of AnsysWBU.exe (which is the file for the DESIGN MODELER) are changed in the same way, the DPI scaling issues persist.

      Select System (Enhanced) can resolve the scaling issues in all applications.
