Hi there, I don't use Illustrator much and have downloaded an old version Illustrator CS6 version 16.0.3 (32 bit) onto my new Dell XPS 15 (9500).
It seems to work fine, but all the tabs, buttons, etc. are tiny. Can I reset the display so that everything is a normal size?
When running old software make sure your OS is also from that time period, or else you will have issues. Teh larger the gap, the larger the issues.
Illustrator system requirements | earlier releases
You would not put old leaded gas into an automobile the use unleaded gas, the same goes for OS & software.
Newer versions have a UI scalng, and you in CS6 nto having thea compensation is likely your issue.
Thanks Mike, UI scaling info helped me find a work around. Good point about old software, etc. but only use Illustrator every 18 months, so not really worth subscribing.
If you want to be able to keep running CS6, make sure you're always prepared to roll back your OS in case a Windows update breaks it.
