my bad, you need to go the other way, something above 1366x768. That's as high as I can go and I have the same problem

Thanks for the suggestion but when I change the display resolution it affects all of my pc not just Speed Demons. I have tried to adjust the scaling for the program but it also affects the rest of the pc.

I guess I will just not use the program as I have other choices.

Thanks for your help.

It will change everything you view. I use the program and I just scroll over if I want to see the numbers in the last columns. So far it hasn't been a problem.

Yes I have done the same thing as you, but if I want to know who are the top horses when I sort the final 4 columns in a race it becomes cumbersome to have to scroll back to the left to find out the number of the horses. When you need to do that for a number of races and tracks, it truly is a pain. Thankfully I have other programs that I can use. But if you ever find a solution to this problem, please let me know.

Thanks again.

Mine allows me to resize the columns - there are a few columns I don't really care about so I pretty much close them up. Wondering if you make the window full screen then adjust the column width if that works better for you.

When I open the program it is already full screen but the display only shows up to half of the FTTL column and none of the 4 columns to the right of that. I have tried reducing some columns I don't care about but have not got access to all of the missing columns that I want. I will close all of the columns that I don't need and see if that will work.

Thanks for your help.

Ever since home computers were introduced, users have had to do work-arounds for various programs. What displays fine on one...may not on another.
What Simon was saying is to open in full screen (the upper right hand shows a single box). Make your adjustment, then click the upper box to reduce (not minimize) the program.
Since "EPS" is fairly useless nowadays, I would just slide that box closed---and there you are. What isn't showing is the SPOT PRINT box, which is easily accessable.

Merry Christmas to you and your family, Greg. Thanks for your posts, hard work, and great programs you share with us.

Hey HPF...I've had the TIPS software for maybe 6-7 years--used the paper/pencil methodology before that. I actually purchased the program from RPM for appx $300... (with PLACE-TO-WIN, and SHOW-A-PROFIT built in). Thank you for the kind words

Ghostrider: I do not use the pre-set "values" in TIPS. I don't think I even tested it as programmed--immediately made my own values for everything. These are the Tips I have set at 100 each:

Distance Switch
Rider Switch
Layoff/WUTT
WUT
("WUT" is referring to an unusual amount of works leading up to today's race--Wound Up Tight). The extra T means he's REALLY wound up--a plus (or 2) added is the epitome of wound up tight.

I can scan through any card in seconds--looking for any horse with a 300+ score.

Tomorrow I see a couple:

TUP 4TH HOLLYWOOD HEAT 20-1
GPX 8TH FRECCIA D'ARGENTO 8-1


Both horses are being prepped for a win attempt...depends on if the connections can get it done. I don't think that GPX horse's trainer has EVER won a race, in very few starts. We'll see.

Antonio Sano at Gulfstream? I think you mean the trainer at TuP.

Yep...I'm absent-minded----got music blasting, dog barking, wife babbling on and on, etc.

As usual...here's another spot play from TUP. If it shows results, I'll explain the method. If not-who cares?

TUP


1ST DANCE SHOES 9/2
2ND WITHIN THE LAW 9/2
3RD KONA COAST 7/2
7TH STEAL HOME 7/2
8TH SORRISO 3-1
