I am having trouble with the UI text being too small on X-Plane 10. I am running X-Plane 10 on my 2018 13 inch MacBook Pro booted into Windows 10 via Bootcamp. Reinstalling Windows does not help. Running X-Plane in compatability mode does not help either. I have also tried reinstalling X-Plane. Any troubleshooting suggestions?

Hi MacBootCamp,

I am not with Laminar Research, just a flight simmer from downunder.

I have read comments in this forum from Laminar Research staff whereby when running X-Plane you should be considering using a screen size of at least 17 get a readable visual image otherwise difficulty will be experienced in reading the screen as you are experiencing

Personally I am not a Mac user but try and connect a television screen to your Mac.  The screen configuration should be at least 1920 x 1080 for best effect.  Television screens are far cheaper than monitors.

An alternative approach is to purchase XP11.  From information supplied to me some time back from Laminar Research it is possible to enlarge the screen image to a readable size..  This ability was required when users were connecting 4K screens.  XP11 has now been modified for 4K screens.

Hope this helps
