Hi I'm trying to use Ardublock with students who don't yet code with ardunio C code, to program out lilypads.
It works ok when I have Windows 10 surface pro connected to a larger monitor, but if I am just running my surface pro on its own the ardublock screen /font is incredibly small. And impossible to read/use.

I've attached a screen grab to show how small the font is, making it impossible to view and use. All students will be using a laptop and will view ardublock in the same way.

Is there any way to make the ardublock program bigger so it can be used?

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
Deb

Does maximizing the ArduBlock window help?

Unfortunately, I don't know of a way to make the fonts bigger. I don't have a Surface Pro to test this on, but does using two fingers to "enlarge" work? By "enlarge" I mean what you'd do on a tablet or phone to make a photo bigger.

If that doesn't work, I don't know of a way to do this.

I had a similar issue with a different program (i.e. Eagle) using my personal Surface Laptop. With ArduBlock, I am not how to adjust the Compatibility settings like the other program.

The easiest would be to try adjusting the screen resolution since it is an unusual size. Also, try changing the size of the text. Just right click the desktop and click on "Display Settings" to adjust the resolution or text. Adjusting the screen resolution worked on my desktop computer to enlarge the ArduBlock and text size.

Hope this helps. =P
