I am a beginner to OpenStudio and am learning the interface with the help of the manual. I am unable to edit the story in my floorplan. The sizing of the sub panes of the UI is such that the text entry is hidden, and there is no option of scrolling to reach it. I am unable to attach images, since I am a newcomer here, so below is a link to the 2 images on google drive. I am unable to find any way to resize the size of the sections, or reduce font size or something.

A similar question was answered here with other ways to customize the scaling of the OSApp itself:

Nice, this works too with better scaling but with a small portion left out still. Part of the results summary icon (the last one, at the bottom) is hidden, but yeah otherwise nice!

I'm not super familiar with the nuances of the UI, but perhaps your best bet would be to mess with the screen resolution and/or magnification on your computer.

That seems to have worked! Also many tabs I had no idea about like output variables were hidden before and are now visible. Thanks!
