When FS22 came out I was so eager to get started that I grabbed the first 4X blank I found and got immediately to work. The card had obvious issues that were easy to fix, and everything seemed relatively ok after that. Now that I create the PDA it's once again obvious that things are not quite right. This is why I prefer to make my own blanks :)

So, the first thing I notice is that the PDA template included with the blank is 8192 with a 4096 inner border. Is this correct for a 4X? It looks ok in-game.

All of the field overlays seem to be in the correct areas (at least according to the PDA), all except the lime-level filter which is huge. I was unsuccessful trying to change its size.

All of the field numbers and hotspot icons cover a much larger area, well into the outside border and beyond. My terrain is set to 4096x4096 and I am wondering if this is correct?

No problems with the weights, everything shows where I would expect to see it.

I've been re-sizing everything I thought would be the cause, including the PDA itself, but nothing seems to be fixing this. On the bright side I was exceptionally successful with discovering what does NOT work, lol.

Anyhow, I've been at this for a while, and I can't think straight mostly from frustration. What seems to be causing this and where should I be looking? Let me know if you need additional info.

Fixed it. Some of my sizes and resolutions are a tad different than I used in FS19 and it was throwing me off because I kept trying to do things the way I used to.

The field info is not displaying when you walk into a field. I suspect that they are misplaced and I'm fairly sure I know what the issue is there. The issue with the Lime level remains also. Can it be resized at all, or is another setting/size not right and goofing it up?
