Virtual Mapped Keys not editable

So I've never run into this issue and I've been using ISBoxer for years. This is a completely fresh install of everything as this PC was rebuilt a few weeks ago. I am completely unable to change any Virtual Mapped Key for either my sole character set, or the individual characters. My only issue previously was how poorly the UI renders in 4K making it nearly impossible to click the button. In this case though, the drop downs are missing entirely. No response from keyboard shortcuts either. Can't really box without the Interact with Target option being set.

I've pasted a screenshot and pastebin of my profile below:


My System:
Windows 10 64-Bit
Ryzen 1700X
NVidia GTX 1070

Things I've tried so far:
Keyboard shortcuts
Restarting PC
Reinstalling ISBoxer suite
Re-creating character set
Changing screen resolution
Running ISBoxer in compatibilty mode (Windows 8, 7, XP Service Pack 3)
Running ISBoxer in Administrative mode

Re: Virtual Mapped Keys not editable

You seem to be missing some controls altogether.

Normally the issue with 4K, is you are using Display Scaling, which the toolkit just isn't designed to deal with.
You could try try setting an Application Compatibility setting for this (we normally recommend against them, but these one have a specific scenario).

The setting is either (depending on version of Windows 10),
"Disable display scaling on high DPI settings" or
"Override high DPI scaling behaviour. Scaling performed by:" and select Application in the drop down.

This would be set for the C:\Program Files (x86)\InnerSpace\ISBoxer Toolkit.exe

The settings above basically tell Windows that the program has NFC about display scaling and not to apply it.

Other than that, the other option is to use scaling of 100%.

That did the trick, thanks! Enabling Override high DPI scaling behavior and setting the scaling to be performed by System (Enhanced) not only brought all of the controls back, but made some of the other fonts much easier to read.

Thanks again!
