Windows touch screen issue with latest release when scaling not 100%


#1

I have received a bug report. I wasn’t able to reproduce it because i don’t have any windows touch device:

I did some more testing and found that the problem occurs whenever Windows’ scaling factor is not 100% (“Change the size of text, apps, and other items” in display settings). For instance, when I had the setting at 175%, tapping on a Chorus button would actually trigger a DCO button.

I have some plugins that i didn’t update and the user told me that they work. Maybe it has to do with the latest windows DPI changes.

Can anyone with a touch device try to reproduce this?

edit: the problem occurs with Windows 10 Pro in Ableton Live Suite 10.0.5 not sure if other hosts are affected.

Does this only occur when using the touch screen?


#3

Yes, mouse works ok on the users system:

scaling issue with touch taps (not “tabs”) with my finger (though using a separate mouse works fine)


#4

OK, I’ll look into this. As a temporary workaround you can ask the user to right-click on the plug-in in Live and deselect “Auto-Scale Plug-In Window” and it should work correctly.

Hi Ed

Thanks for looking into this and for the work around. The user avoids windows scaling at all as a work around:

use a 100% Windows scaling factor and increase Ableton zoom and scale plugin to compensate.

This commit should fix the issue.

Thanks for the fast fix. I will try that asap and hope the user has time to verify it.
