How to show depth soundings in Vector charts

Who can tell how to show depth soundings in vector charts?
I use O-CPN 4.8.4 with the oeSENC plugin 2.0 and charts from O-Charts on Windows 10. A+ or "S" hot key do not help.
Last year all worked fine.
Now I have bought new charts, therefore had to update the oeSenc plugin. The depth soundings can be toggled on/off with the 's' key but appear in extremely small font that is absolutely unreadable. increasing the view does not change the font size.
Just updated to O-CPN 4.8.4, but that changes nothing.
Is there a way to increase the font size / type of the depth soundings ?

Go to Toolbox and set the value of Chart Object Scale Factor slider on User interface tab to a higher value.

Re: How to show depth soundings in Vector charts

There is possibly an issue with some systems and 4.8.4 plus oeSENC regarding the size of soundings.

MdV, can you please check the size of the screen as defined by OpenCPN?
(Display|Advanced)

And what screen are you using - size and resolution?

Re: How to show depth soundings in Vector charts

Going from CM93 to oeSENC the soundings are much smaller and the lower 1/4 of the numbers are not visible. I need to set the slider to +2 to get a similar size. With this change the full numbers are shown.

Screen width 271mm
1024 x 768 Pixels (270 x 203 mm)
96 x 96 dpi

Screen 1368 x 768 10 inch or 1920 x 1080 24 inch no difference
options / display/ advanced physical screen width auto (1072) when changing to 1368 depth soundings are not visible. Also not after restart of the program
is it possible to get the old oeSENC back for testing?

That width should be physical width in millimeters, not number of pixels. Something like 520 for a 24 inch monitor.
