For some reason, when I installed Roxio 2012, it only partially shows the "Estmated Project sizes" making it dfficult to see. It does show the disc size clear. I did a repair and then I reinstalled it, but it continues to hide half of the "Estmated Project sizes" which is annoying. I don't see any way to open that up more.  sugggestions appreciated. I can also use the main program but I do like using Creator Classic. I am running Windows 7 pro.

Set your DPI at 100% and it should cure your problem.

I'm just a fellow user so please don't blame Roxio for any misguidance I may have provided.

Thanks. However, I find the smaller dpi difficult to read. That is why I wanted the "medium" setting. I wonder why Roxio has to do this but the problem is that it does. I guess I will just have to use another program to burn data DD's or just settle for half of the "estimated projected sizes". I can see it. It is just annoying.

This is not Roxio's doing, and you are likely to have the same problem with other programs.

 

The Roxio programs will display properly at Microsoft's recommended 100% scale, no matter what you set your screen resolution to - 800 x 600 or 1820 x 1080, or whatever.

 

If you choose to set your resolution so high that the text gets too small for your eyes, then you have to scale up your display to magnify the text again, and that magnifies all your program menus as well (not just the Roxio ones) possibly putting parts of them outside the displayed screen area.

 

If you keep your scale at the 100% value Microsoft suggests and set your screen resolution  back to where you can read the text, you will have solved these problems.

Thanks for responding. I don't know but all I know is that all my other programs using the medium 125% setting are not a problem. The default setting is so small on my 23inch diagonal monitor. Now on my 27 inch, I use the default setting because it is huge.  None of my Adobe programs do this.  I know that very low settings do cause a problem like 800x600 . But it is what it is. I have found CDXp to be pretty reliable and doesn't take up a lot of space. Roxio 2012 is really overkill but I have always liked it. I could use the main Roxio data program but I prefer Creator Classic without any problems. Roxio has easy CD & DVD burning but it doesn't say it burns Blu-ray. I almost exclusively use Blu-ray discs for backup.

Hi Ray,

 

The current version of Easy CD & DVD Burning (version 14) is actually a only cut-down version of Creator 2012 with modified menus and fewer capabilities.  If Creator 2012 won't do something, then Easy CD & DVD Burning certainly can't!

 

Creator Classic has much more flexibility than the simplified software embedded in the menu application. Alas, that version was also the last to have Creator Classic. That's why so many of the folk here are still using Creator 2012 in preference to any of the NXT series.

Hi. I don't get Roxio's strategy but Its just that Roxio 2012 is more than I need. I switched over to Adobe Encore for video and find it impressive and flexible with a professional result but a steep learning curve.  It is so unintuitive that I forget how to use if I haven't used it for awhile. Although Adobe seems to no longer support Encore as it is not in active development and believing  live streaming is where it is at, they seem to feel. I am begining to see their point. Thanks for responding. I always enjoyed the years I used Roxio and the help on this forum is greatly appreciated. Everything keeps changing.

Sometimes it's like that legendary king Canute, who went to the beach and ordered the tide to retreat. Things keep coming at you.

 

I hope we managed to help a little.
