Jean and martinus, I'm so greatful to you guys for taking time out to look at this thing.
Jean, I upgraded to the changed version and it does prevents the program from crashing. However, I'm sad to say that the chartwheel still won't resize, at least not on my computer...

Maybe I found the answer to my problems. Could it be that I earlier on copied the entire program from one computer to another (with another size screen) instead of updating it from the internet, thus copying inappropriate configuration settings?

you could try to delete pd.ini to start over with fresh settings.

No, that didn't work, unfortunately.

I'm not sure if I can, I'm not very good with computers.

First take a screenshot using the windows snipping tool. Then when you post, there's a button Attachments and other options. Click on it, click on choose file and post the pic.
Or use some freeware like greenshot for taking screenshots.

thanks, that's helpful.
but this is not maximized, is it?
I've seen problems with laptops that lie about their resolution, maybe this is the case here. Is it your only pc?

When it's maximized everything is fine, but when the program is made smaller the chart wheel is still the same, large size, only partly visible, as in the picture.
The screenshot is from my laptop, only I have the exact same problem with my stationary computer.

Would it be helpful if I posted the contents in the ini-file?

By the way, I still have a ini-file from an older version which was/is still working (on both computers) with the resizing zodiac. That may be helpful, then again I don't want to take up your time.

Look, the main chart does not resize when you make the mainwindow smaller.
It used to do so many years ago but it had too much problems.
If you want a different size, use options - settings - layout - user resolution, and restart.
