- An internal Qlik Ideation has been started with our R&D team to resolve this however a major NPrinting Designer revision would be required. One possible solution to additional flexibility with Windows 10 and Window Server 2016 zoom settings is the development of an NPrinting Web Designer. This is currently added as an idea/feature request but not yet inserted as NPrinting product road map priority at this time.

- Remote Desktop connection: If you are connecting to the NPrinting Designer through a Remote Desktop Connection to another computer, you need to update your local laptop/desktop computer operating system display settings/advanced scaling settings are set to 100 percent. The remote computer will then take your local desktop zoom settings.
- Multiple Monitors: If you have Multiple Monitors, each monitor must be configured to 100 percent zoom setting, Different zoom settings on separate monitors connected to the same NP designer computer will also cause NPrinting Designer reporting problems described above.
- The issue could also be a DPI problem. For more information, see NPrinting Designer : Unable to edit Excel report with Windows 10 - NPrinting cannot find a supported template editor
