Supported resolutions and screen areas
The Compleat Botanica can be used on computers with a wide range of display capabilities. This chart indicates the resolutions that have been tested by Crescent Bloom. Most computers use a resolution of 96 DPI (dots per inch), so the vast majority of users can set their screen area to any value -- from 640 x 480 all the way up to 1600 x 1200. Users that have chosen to use "Large fonts" are using a screen resolution of 120 DPI; the minimum screen size for these computers is a setting of 800 x 600. The higher resolutions of 135, 144, 170 and 192 DPI are very rarely used except on the newest large screen monitors.
* Screen resolutions for display areas marked with an asterisk must use the "Auto hide" option with the Taskbar because the minimum window size covers the entire screen.
The last column, labeled "Minimum windows size", represents the smallest window size (in pixels) that can accomodate the Compleat Botanica software. This minimum window size grows as you increase your screen resolution in order to accomodate the readability and layout of the windows within the software.
