In W10 (and former versions as well) the \program_data folder is a hidden folder.
Change in the settings of the Windows Explorer the corresponding entry.

Re: plugin fonts/boxes

Thanks bcn. New computer....duh. here are the files:
I did change the display mm to manual and increased it to 357 per the FAQ, but no improvement. This laptop does have a hi res screen for presentations, so I assume it is a display setting somewhere. thanks in advance.

Re: plugin fonts/boxes

For the object and font sizes try
Options|Userinterface --> Enable Scaled Graphics Interface
Play with the settings and look what suits well.

(We are using a Dell XPS13 (13") with 3200x1800 px)

Re: plugin fonts/boxes

we are using 3840x2160 on an xps15. had that interface checked. all fonts seem to be 9 regular Segoe UI. No change when I move interface up to +5 and chart text to -5. Maybe our screen res is too high? All of the dialog boxes look like the tide graphic, and cannot see the data.
