yes, I did have the windows 10 scaling set to 115%. Now at 100% your UI looks fine again! It's probably not easy to account for this so for now I'm going to keep it at 100%

After upgrade to last service

After upgrade to last service pack for 3dsmax 2018 I cant use Zorb anymore, it just opens and close directly and says Bye in maxscript. I had this problem on a other pc a couple of years ago, is there any solution for it?
