• Having problems with video with Segment PRO on a new PC? You could be experiencing one (or both) of two problems. First, if you have an ultra high-resolution screen, the recommended settings might be higher than 1920 x 1080 with a scale factor of more than 100% and the user interfaces for all software written in c# will NOT be correct. Simply change the resolution and scaling to 1920 x 1080 and scale to 100%. Second, if you have a wonky Bowl View, you have an Intel Iris graphics solution and there are serious problems with it. Solution - go to the Drivers page at Intel's website and install their latest driver for your computer. This will fix it. Link: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/download-center/home.html

Finally broke down and bought the program. Doing my first open segment piece, stay tuned for results. I’ve been turning about 10 years and like to challenge myself, I believe Pro will help a lot.

Welcome to the forum.
Been using Lloyd's software for years. Really simplies the process of planning a segment bowl. Especially when you want to make changes.

It has been said before on this forum.
WoodTurnerPro gives you full control of each ring.
SegmentPro in its current form is "rules" based and limits what you can do to some of the rings. It does automate much of the planning process.

Have fun with the software.
