tiny icons and text size

I just installed OpenCPN on a new tablet running Windows 10. The icons and the depth markings on the chart are both tiny. I have used OpenCPN on other laptops in the past and the icons and text have been much bigger. How can I change the icon size text size? I am using some old CM93 charts.
Thanks
Jill

Hi Jill .. welcome to the forum.

The charts don't have anything to do with this.

Go to Options/User Interface. At the bottom are two sliders which probably are on '0'.

Moving the top one (User Interface Scale Factor) to the right will increase the icon size.

Moving the bottom one (Chart Object Scale Factor) to the right will increase the cm93 text and depth number.

Some trial and error will show you what you want.

Also, you may want to explore installing the Droid fonts on your computer. Let us know if you want to do that.

Good luck ... Terry
