PowerPoints Display Output Skewed

Modified on: Fri, 20 Nov, 2020 at 10:50 AM


Issue


This can be caused by high DPI settings in your windows display settings and PowerPoint not working properly with the high DPI settings.



Solution


First, check your Screen Setup to make sure it is set correctly.


Since the PowerPoint files are not fitting the screen properly, follow these steps to try to resolve the issue:


Check DPI setting on each of your monitors and make sure they are set to 100%

  1. Right-click the Windows desktop, and click on Display settings.
  2. You will see something similar in the screenshot below:image

  3. Make sure this slider bar is set to 100% for each monitor. 
  4. It will default to Monitor 1 when you first open these Display settings. 
  5. Click on Monitor 2, and make sure that is set to 100%, and if you have a 3rd monitor, then you will do the same.



You will need to make sure the Resolution in PowerPoint is set to use Current Resolution 

  1. Open PowerPoint.
  2. Navigate to the “SLIDE SHOW” tab and click “Set Up Slide Show”.How to Change Presentation Resolution in Microsoft PowerPoint 2013?

If you do not have a full version of PowerPoint installed and are using PowerPoint Viewer, follow these steps:


Using PowerPoint viewer to display PowerPoint slideshows in EasyWorship will cause this issue after updating to the most recent version of EasyWorship.  PowerPoint viewer is not multi-monitor dpi compatible and now EasyWorship is, which results in PowerPoints appearing zoomed. Here are a couple of solutions for this issue, you do not need to apply both to resolve this issue.


Turn off the option to use PowerPoint Viewer: (Recommended) 

  1. Click on edit, options, then advanced
  2. Uncheck the option to use the PowerPoint viewer and click OK.


Note: If you have a full version of PowerPoint and EasyWorship isn't able to load and play PowerPoint slideshows, please run a repair on office from programs and features in control panel.
