Hey folks,

Just wondering if there is a way to adjust label font in slider diagrams to make it less blurry. Compared to v33, PSSE v34 makes me feel like I need a new pair of glasses...

Final Update - An update to PSSE v34.7 from v34.6.1 fixed the issue!

Old Update - it seems to be a video driver issue. If I turn off the "Hardware Acceleration" option under Edit > Preferences > Diagram > Advanced Global Settings, the text becomes sharp again (although all the diagram text is moved to a single spot on the diagram, making it impossible to read).

I will have to work with my IT department to update my video drivers and see if that does the trick...

Be aware that if you are using an Intel integrated graphic card, there is a specific version of the driver that you have to use.

Hi. Which is the specific driver? My diagram moves very slowly. I'm using an Intel(R) HD Graphics 530 (version:, also I have Windows 10 Pro (version 10.0.18363). Thanks

My driver is Intel UHD Graphics 620 version I'm on Windows 10 Pro 1903 build 18362.535. The slider font is fuzzy with this config, but otherwise it runs fine. It looks like Siemens doesn't recommend Intel drivers beyond This is shown in the PSSE v35.0.0 release notes

Thank you! This solved a problem I had for the last couple of months. It is incredible how an expensive software has so many bugs and limitations.

ademuth93, what video driver did they recommend? If I turn off "Hardware Acceleration" the program starts closing en starting up again and again.
