    Using AE CS4 on a Mac Mini 2014 w/Safari 10.12.6

    Recently opened Mocha to stabilize some video. The layout is way larger than the monitor; Samsung 32″. Can’t seem to drag it down to fit. Didn’t find anything in the ‘view’ menu to correct the problem.

    Appreciate all thoughts.

    Hey John,

    What version of Mocha are you using?

    Haven’t quite found it on my Mac Mini, but on my Windows PC I can change screen resolution and font size – not perfect, but may do the trick.

    Thanks Mads,

    Version 1.2.2. checked my Samsung monitor and it’s set for the Mac Mini. There isn’t any way to adjust the layout in Mocha preferences or the view menu.

    Hey John,

    Thank you – as mentioned, on windows you can make a lot of changes to the monitor set-up. Although, if you go too large, you’ll need a large magnifying glass to read the text…

    Just checked over on the BorisFX forum and there is a suggestion made back in ’08 by JP (great guy who was with Imagineer from the beginning), which is to delete your preference file:

    The other one is to maximise the Mocha window, but I guess that you’ve already tried that?
