Hello Samreen Ameen,

do you mind trying the following steps?

  1. Navigate to the installation directory of PV*SOL (something like "C:\Program Files (x86)\Valentin EnergieSoftware\PVSOL premium 2021\)
  2. Look for the executable file PVSOLpremium.exe, right click on it and select Properties
  3. Switch to the Compatibility tab and click the button Change high DPI settings
  4. Uncheck the checkbox in High DPI scaling override and close all opened setting windows by applying changes if necessary

After this PV*SOL might look a bit misaligned (some controls might not be reachable, texts might be cut off or overlapping, etc) but the measured lines in the Map Section tool and the draw-polygon tool in the 3D editor should match.

If you have further questions or in case this workaround does not work, please reach out again!

Best regards,
