Sensor Panel resized itself after connecting new monitor; now I can't fix it


Recommended Posts

I had a sensor panel that I put a LOT of time into creating including graphs with loads, temps, etc. with a bunch of other stuff.  I had it perfectly sized to fit on about half of one of my three monitors.  Today I upgraded my Alienware aw3418dw (a 3440x1440 ultrawide monitor) to the LG CX48 (a 16:9 4k monitor).  Not sure whether or not I'll even keep the new one since it's arguably too big, but it is gorgeous, and as I work out the kinks in using it, I'm liking it more and more.  Anyway, As soon as I turned the computer on after swapping out the monitors, Aida64 decided to put the sensor panel on the cx48 and resized it to be GIGANTIC.  I can't get it back to the normal size no matter what I've tried.

If I try to "resize" it from within Aida64, it just resizes the window without resizing all of the various graphs and whatnot inside it, meaning that I can make the sensor panel window itself smaller, but it cuts off the vast majority of the info I had in there.  I don't remember the exact size I had it set to originally, but I'm guessing it was something in the range of 900x1000 pixels.  The size that Aida64 resized it too (including resizing all the graphs and whatnot to fit in the window) is 2775x3000.

I've been thinking about making some suggestions here for awhile about ways to make the entire sensor panel creation process more user-friendly - it could use some vast improvements in this area.  But right now I have a basically unusable sensor panel and am not sure how to fix it.  Any help would be appreciated.

First of all, please make sure to backup your SensorPanel layout.

The issue is most likely caused by DPI scaling discrepancy (difference) between your various monitors.  We're already working on a solution for that exact issue.  However, in case your existing SensorPanel layout was already designed with a non-100% DPI scaling setting in mind, it would still require adjustments after us implementing the DPI scaling option for the SensorPanel.  I will drop a message into this topic once we have an update to this.  It shouldn't take more than a week.

Thanks for the response.  I did have this sensor panel backed up but a while back but had modified it quite a bit since the last time I did so.  If I can find the file, at least I won't have to start from scratch to rebuild it I guess.  It's great to hear that you guys are working on a fix for this!  

Now that I have a forum account made,  I'll probably make some suggestions over in the suggestion forum, one of the biggest of which (for me at least) is the ability to overlay graphs one on top of the other without having to manually try to align them, fiddle with making one have a transparent background, etc.  It's nice to see the GPU load, for instance on the same graph but with a different color than the GPU temp, among other things.  Being able to hit a button to align a bunch of graphs into a grid or auto-space them out would be nice, too.  I love the flexibility of the aida64 sensor panel, but it could definitely use some tweaks to make it more user-friendly.
