    Changed dpi on wine settings, can't get it back

    I changed the font dpi in wine to a very large setting, now I can't use wine as everything is out of screen. I can't view that setting as it is hidden bellow the screen where i cant view it.

    Help would be appreciated.

    Thanx

    Wine settings are stored in a pretend registry in ~/.wine. If you can't run regedit, you can change the values with your favourite text editor.

    I found ~/.wine. but I don't see where the font dpi settings are stored.

    Hold down the Alt key and you can drag windows from any point (instead of just the title bar as usually). That should allow you to move the window so that you can access the setting.
