Author Topic: Is there a way to resize window/zoom on Spark 2? Everything is so tiny.  (Read 1490 times)

Hi there. I know I'm very late to the Spark 2 party, but I downloaded/installed the Spark 2 demo earlier today. I'm surprised I hadn't heard about it despite my owning V Collection and a KeyLab 61 Mk II.

I've been playing around with Spark 2 for a few hours and am somewhat underwhelmed. One thing that's been driving me crazy is the fact that the interface/window is so small, making things very hard to read and click on. In other Arturia software there is usually an option to resize the window size and/or zoom. However I don't see that option for Spark 2.

Has anyone found a way to resize/zoom Spark 2 other than using Mac OS X's Accessibility features?

Spark unfortunately hasn't been updated since it was last sold with V Collection 4 so it didn't receive the UI upgrade.

My totally personal opinion without the benefit of any inside knowledge is that it's verging on being 'abandonware'. The minute they stopped shipping it with V Collection I realised it was the beginning of the end.

Thanks for the response and for your insight. Even at 50% off, it seems expensive for abandonware, so I'll hold off for now ;)

In Windows find the Spark application file.
Usually located at
C:\Program Files (x86)\Arturia\Spark\

Right click on the Spark application and choose Properties.
Under Compatibility Tab, click Change High DPI Settings
Tick the box High DPI Scaling Override, choose System option

That's it.  :)
