color picker seems to zoom in the screen

Recommended Posts

So every time I try to use color picker it zooms in my whole screen (initially changing the reslolution from 1920x1080 to 1366x768) I'm afraid that this also happens when I run any script so all the coordinates that are set to auto detect are detected wrongly, and even if I manual define them they'll be set incorrectly. Is there a way around this? I'm runing windows 8.1


Thank you

Hey All,


I am having this same problem, is there a known solutions for this? If I open up mspaint and place one red dot on the canvas and run the below script with scar, it moves my mouse below and to the right of the color exactly x + 60 and y + 32 from where it should be. My Resolution is set to 1536 X 864.


Any attempts to capture coordinates using the color picker causes the screen to zoom in substantially and is resulting in inaccurate coordinates.



x, y: integer;



if FindColor(x, y, clRed, 0, 0, 500, 500) then

MoveMouse(x, y);



**EDIT: I wanted to add that using color picker and scar on a different PC with the resolution set the same does not reproduce this problem. It has been a problem on windows 8.1 and windows 10, but not on a pc that is running windows 7 **

I didn't script since a long time. I start a new script but then fall on the same problem. ScarDivi zoom every time i want to pick a color or a bitmap (bunch of color).
I didn't find a way to make it work even if i reduce my window in the scope of the zoom to select the color. I've tried the portable version or the normal version 3.41.

Is there anything to do on setting ? how did you manage to solve this problem ? 

Thanks for your help. I love this software.
I've tried it on W10 and W11.
