I’m going to show you how to fix a problem that’s driven me crazy literally for years.
If you’re using KRDC to remotely access a computer with VNC, the Scale button, by default, does nothing.
It’s actually a super easy and kind of silly fix. If you prefer video, see my YouTube video on this embedded at the bottom.
If you look at the KRDC config file you can see that scaling defaults to 100.
For some reason, this causes the scaling button to do nothing.
To fix this, you could hand edit the krdc config file every time you have a new connection, or, you can just add the Scaling Factor action to the toolbar.
Go Settings then Configure Toolbars
Scroll down and select Scaling Factor
Click the right arrow to add it to the toolbar
Click the up arrow to put it next to Scale
If you click Scale, still nothing happens.
Turn Scale on and then drag the slider and scaling will start working!
At this point you won’t have to drag the slider anymore.
Once scale is off of its default value, the scale button works as expected. Simply do this for every new VNC client you connect to.

Brilliant! That minor tweak saved may day too, thanks for sharing.
You’re very welcome; glad I could help!
Cheers, worked like a treat
You’re welcome; glad to hear it!
Saw this on YouTard – tried it – great work-around. KRDC is great, other than this.
The slider should be on visible on the toolbar by default IMO
Glad I was able to help!
