[#10025] Citavi's interface appears out of focus or the text is sized incorrectly


You are using Citavi on a high-DPI or retina display monitor or you installed the Anniversary Update for Windows 10. Citavi's interface appears out of focus or washed out or text either appears too large or too small for the interface. 


So that text doesn't appear too small under the high pixel density, the operating system displays all applications at 133% - 200%. Before Citavi Beta, the program could only be scaled to 150%. This discrepancy is why Citavi appears blurry.

Solution for Citavi 5

Install Citavi 5.4 or higher. You can download the Setup at http://www.citavi.com/update.
If you are unable to install the update, you can try the solution below.

Solution for Previous Versions

If you cannot install the beta version or would like to wait for the update to Citavi 5.4 (planned for September 2016), disable display scaling for Citavi. 
  1. Right-click the file "C:\Program Files (x86)\Citavi 5\bin\Citavi.exe" (If you are working with Citavi 3 or Citavi 4 please change the path accordingly):
  2. On the shortcut menu select Properties.
  3. Click the Compatibility tab.
  4. Select the Disable display scaling on high DPI settings checkbox.
