Scrapple is awesome.

It's almost perfect, but I discovered one major flaw - when I tried to open my project on my laptop instead of my desktop, all the little cards were squashed together and overlapping, and I can't find any way to fix it.

I have a very high res laptop (a Lenovo yoga) and other programs have display issues - is there any plan to find a fix for this?

Apologies if this has already been asked - I did scan through, but couldn't find anything.

Have you tried adapting the similar fix for Scrivener to Scapple?

https://scrivener.tenderapp.com/help/kb ... i-displays

You would do the same steps for the registry, but the manifest file would be renamed to scapple.exe.manifest and be placed in the Scapple folder.

I don't use Scapple regularly, but I just tried it on my Windows 10 Surface Pro 3 with external monitor, and it seems to be doing the trick nicely.

Thanks for your reply!
To be honest I get a bit spooked about anything that starts with 'regedit' - I'm always worried that I'll do something wrong and make the entire computer explode - though perhaps that's a little over cautious.
I'll see how I get on and whether I decide its urgent enough to get my hands dirty...
Thanks again for taking the time to answer.

If you like, I've created a .reg file that makes the necessary entry in the Registry. I've tested it out on my systems. Simply double-click the .reg file and give permission, and the entry is created. Then you can follow the rest of the steps for the manifest file.

Golly, that's kind of you - but I can't see any attachment? Am I looking in the wrong place?

I don't know whether this worked for anyone here, but I tried this (see my post at http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=32313&p=226832#p226832), without any luck.
