Problem with 'List of Document Variables'

09.03.2020, 23:52

When I open Variables > List of Document Variables, I get a blank page, just a column of colored dots on the left; the names of the variables do not appear. See screenshot attached. The variables do appear as column headings in "Data editor" (Variables > Data editor). Am I missing something? I've tried everything I can think of, even rebooting. Thanks for any help.

Hi JBAnthro,

This might be a scaling issue that can easily be fixed! Please
1. Press the windows-key, enter "display settings" and select the entry "Change display settings"
2. In the "Scale and layout"-section, set the display to 100%
3. Restart windows

If this doesn't help, we kindly ask you to reach out to our support team that can be contacted via

Kind regards,
MAXQDA support team
