View at 200% extremely dark

Postby lmantei » Fri Mar 31, 2017 10:15 pm

When I attempt to view a design at 200% the image is so dark I can barely see it. I don't seem to have this issue with other zooming sizes.

What is the build date on your version as reported from "About" on the "Help" menu ?
Which stitch view do you have selected on the "Stitches" menu ?

Thank you for your response.

It's the most recent version:
Product Version: 2.1.1.0
Build: 2.1.1.495
Build Date: 3/31/2017 11:44:54 AM

Stitch view is Symbols and Blocks. I did discover, after posting this, that only Block viewing shows the colors as they should be at 200%. However, I would think viewing at 100% would also be just as dark, if not darker; yet, the image appears the same as the Block view.

In that view you are asking the program to show a colour block with a symbol in the middle with only a 2 x 2 pixel area for the whole thing. The best that can be done is to show only the colour at that scale which is what you get at 100%
