A minor problem, but annoying: When I am imaging with Autostar suite / envisage I notice that in some sections of the imaging screen (i.e. when using LPI/DSI) part of the text is missing. It appears to be too large for the section of the screen that it is displayed in and extends out of its display area.

I'm sure that Meade must have spotted this so I wonder if there is a way that I can reduce the text size so that I can see it all. As I say only a minor problem and I can guess what the text is anyway but.......

You probably need to increase the screen resolution of your monitor. I think you need to run at 1024x768 or more to get a complete Envisage page.

Nope, resolution is 1280 x 1024 and going to an even higher screen resolution doesn't help. At about 2/3 of the way along the top section of the screen the word "Image" appears. There is a word underneath which I cant make out - it is probably "quality" and there is someting under "Num Images" as well. Strange!

Oh well, that was a shot in the dark. :)

I'm not too good with computer problems.

Unless it has something to do with your font size default in _Control Panel>Display>Appearance_ I'm all out of suggestions.

Mine is set Normal. Large and X-Large do cut off some of the text in Envisage.

In "Help/About it says "AutoStar DSI/LPI Imaging Software Version 5.85.
But I have just checked my Windows fonts and, to my suprise, they were set to "Large". Reducing to Normal has solved the problem.

Thanks Mike/Mark

I just recently downloaded the latest version of Autostar suite/Envisage and noticed a similar problem, but not related to the physical size of the fonts.  I haven't bothered to reduplicate the problem because it was more of a minor annoyance, but some of the text/buttons/other gadgets seem to get clipped.  For example, the "Settings" button when Drizzle is selected gets clipped right through the "g".  The button works, it's just cut short.  I just now tried it again, and it seems to happen when I start Envisage without a camera attached.

On a slightly different issue,  did Meade remove the "x" button that was originally at the top right side of the image window?  I can't see any way to delete old tabs once I'm done with them.
