Unwanted resizing of objects after qvw exchange

Hello QV-Community,

I've experienced a strange behavior when loading a qvw file, that was created by a colleague. Everything except of the sizes of the objects and their position was loaded correctly. Correctly here means: loaded like on his system.

When I open the qvw file all data, configurations and objects are loaded. And everything except the size of the objects and their positions seems to be set correctly. There is also a background image set. Interesting is, that its size and position is set correctly.

As I understood the content of a qvw file contains all data, configurations and objects in one file. So loading the qvw on a different system should lead to loading the same data, configurations and objects. And finally the sheet respectively dashboard should look just like on the system where it was created.

Just a note to the systems:

  • The QlikView version of the creator is unknown to me, but could be from the latest down to 10.
    • Here the objects look like they should (correct size and position)
  • The QlikView version of somebody who changed the qvw is 11.2 SR 2
    • Here the objects also look like they should (correct size and position)
  • My QlikView version is 11.2 SR 2, too.
    • Here the objects do not look like they should. They are all larger. Interesting is that the positions where changed in a way that the distnaces between them seem to be like in the original version. So nothing overlaps. But it's all larger!

Just to exclude something: NO - it's not the zoom ^^ (... that means as far as there is no hidden or partial zoom function)

Did anyone already experience something similar to that?

Best Regards

Hello Martina,

thanks for the hint and the quick answering, but we have the same fonts.

It was somewhere else and I found no solution but a workaround. If you're using a high resolution screen then Windows 7 zooms by itself. This does not only affect the windows but also their contents - like the objects in QlikView. If you set this level to from normal (125%) to small (100%) then it works, but also changes the rest of your desktop system. It's not beatiful but which bug is 😉

It is declared as a bug and the workaround can be found here:
