    I just recently purchased a SmartMusic subscription. Overall, I like the program. Unfortunately, it doesn’t display very well on a high resolution windows tablet. I have a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and the text is very small and difficult to read. I spoke with tech support and they are aware of the problem with high res windows tablets and say they are working on it. For now, the workaround is to change the resolution and the dpi on my tablet each time I use SmartMusic and then switch in back after I’m done. That’s annoying! Hopefully they will have that resolved soon!
