Spin it again in full screen?

Postby DarrylGittins » Tue Jan 21, 2014 11:46 am

I love Spin it again but I find it frustrating that on my huge monitor, I have to run the program in a tiny little Window. Why can't it run in full screen?

Hi,

Spin It Again doesn't offer that option. The only way to get it larger would be to use a lower video resolution.

Even though I'm not running a 16 bit OS? :lol:

Sorry - don't mean to be cheeky, but that's how it feels to used fixed-sized windows. Any idea if an update is planned to bring the app into the 21st century? I'd buy the upgrade in a snap.

Oh, and thanks for the reply!

Hi,

I hear you. Spin It Again is showing its age, but we don't currently have any plans to update it. We're busy working on our Mixcraft, Acoustica CD/DVD Label Maker and AeroMIDI software.

Spin-it-again is just fine like it is. Change means becoming more complicated. Simplicity is SIA's forte. I can see the sight-impaired being inconvenienced by not having a full screen. You might try using your flat-panel smart TV as a monitor.

I thought the following might be helpful:

Create a user profile just for your recording work. This is a good idea anyway, as it makes it easier to have only the tools you want to use visible on your desktop and as little else running as possible when making recordings.

Install a program like "Carroll" that will automatically adjust the screen settings when that user logs on and then change them back when that user logs off. "Carroll" is donorware and can be found at http://thesz.diecru.eu/content/carroll.php or on Tucows, Cnet, MajorGeeks, etc. There are probably others but I did not dig much further. This works with Win 7 and so should probably be fine with 8.x and 10 as well. For those who are wondering, the .eu domain type is for the European Union, and there are about 2.5 million sites with this designation. "SZ" offers an interesting assortment of single-purpose programs and seems responsive to users, although I have had no need to test that.

Yes just adjust your screen resolution way down. Everything will get bigger.
