Desktop App Scale

 It would be nice to have the function to scale the size of the text/graphics in the desktop app similar to google chrome. I am using a laptop and have the windows display scale set at 125%, which works well for most of my applications. However, Wrike's text and graphics are too large.

I'm very grateful for the desktop version - so key to be able to switch to Wrike easily and not have to hunt through browser tabs or accidentally close Wrike when I close Chrome.

The inability to change to font size and scale on the desktop app is also a pain point for quickly sharing my screen in videocalls or in a team meeting on a projector.  Since the desktop version seems to be just a browser anyway, how much would it take to allow zooming the page it's rendering?  Thank you.

The font size on my desktop application changed for the worse yesterday.  Not sure why.  It's so tiny, making it difficult to read and navigate.  It would be nice to size it to my preference, or at least back to what it was.

I am with you all... it's incredibly small... and I am on a giant 27 inch imac even... and it's so strange you can't even zoom in in any way.

PLEASE PLEASE  change this... I am very unlikely to keep using the desktop app for this reason, as well as my 30+ person team that uses wrike.

@Lisa - Have there been any updates on this topic?  The text size and/or zoom levels of page elements on the desktop app can't be modified, but that isn't the case for the web app with most browsers.  I think it might be better to use the web app until the desktop app can integrate this setting, especially if a user intends to connect different displays (i.e. screens) with different resolutions.

Example:  I'm typing this message right now via my wall-mounted TV in my living room.  I'm using Firefox as my browser and I can easily zoom in and out via Ctrl+/- (current zoom level 240%).  This zoom-ability also holds true for Wrike workspace website.  If I switch over to the Wrike Windows desktop app on this laptop, the text and everything in the interface is so small on this 55" screen that I can barely read anything!  😵

I'd agree, just moved up to 4k screens at work and the ability to Command + to scale text in teh app would be great. I guess the fix is to just use browser but I like using the app.

Hi Lisa, any update on this? My issue is that the font size on both the desktop app and browser is too big and requires horizontal scrolling to view content. Easily fixed on the browser (should be an option to change font size anyway) but why is this not an option on the app?

Please give the ability to change the font size so you can narrow columns and see more of the gantt chart for complex projects

In the Desktop App (for Windows)

  • please make gradual zoom in/zoom out
  • make zooming easy to access - e.g. by scrolling,
  • and please make the zoom scale pretty detailed with 6-8-10 "steps" between 100% and 150%. (Chrome's 100-110-125-150 is too crude).

Thank you for you kind attention.

I had to delete the Wrike desktop app because changing font size wasn't possible. It seems like this issue has been persisting for over 2+years.

DItto, I've also deleted the Wrike desktop app (MacOS) because I cannot change the font size. It's too large and I can't read column lists of tasks (all are too truncated to make out).

Wrike dev lead: Please consider this request as passed on by Lisa et al. over the last two plus years, thanks!

Thanks a lot @Cansu!

I come from france and with European 'azerty' keyboard the shortcut key "Ctrl+-" doesn't work.

It oblige me to use the three dots menu as many times as I want to reduce my screen which is not very user friendly !

 

Please let me know if an improvement is planned!
