Hi, this might be more of a lack of a necessary feature. Let me explain:

I have a very poor program on my computer for setting my monitor size. Its supposed to be 1920x1080 (and is currently). However, the screen I use has no way to shrink or resize the edges, and default puts most of the start menu off the screen and leaves that much space beyond view on all sides.

I find ways to adapt. Often times I use a smaller resolution, but then the picture is distorted or fuzzy. or I use the only program i have to "shrink" the screen a little so that it sits inside that field.

My current way to deal with this, and the fact that everything on computers is getting so tiny, and my screen keeps getting farther away is to use Windows (win10) resize feature.

--------------------
All that to say i wish your program had a interface size option. It appears to know how to resize, because when I resize windows it changes:
[screenshot 1] - default
[screenshot 2] 125%

But the option is all screwed up. If i resize the program gets reset to default 100%, even though windows is still at 125%. this means 100% is now closer to 75% and impossible to see!
[screenshot A] -125%
screenshot B] -100%
screenshot C] - 150% (what was 125% before)

Anyway, i just wanted to mention this is an issue for me, but most people probably aren't nearsighted, or have a moniter instead of a laptop, and thus use these sorts of odd features in windows.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have the newest version of Stencyl: 3.4.00
I have the latest update on windows 10 (forced upon me....)
I use AMD Catalyst monitor driver for adjusting screen resolution (currently almost everything is default though on this so it shouldn't make a difference).

I seem to be having issues posting the screenshots here. please let me know if you need them, they are very straightforward in what the show, just the size of Stencyl vs the setting on windows, before and after a restart.

oh... there it is. lol.

I'm not sure, but perhaps this is an issue that will be helped by updated to Java 9. Stencyl isn't compatible with Java 9 yet, but I'll post here when it is.
