Adjusting screen resolution lead to a black screen
Received PBP a couple days ago and love it although it has several quirks that people seem to be working through quickly. Appreciate all the good work occuring on this project.

Wanted to offer moral support and register that my PBP has had problems changing the resolution as well. I have not successfully changed the resolution with the Control Center's-Hardware-Displays.

**** Note that I have not run the system updates so this may be part or all of the problem in my case. ****

My experience:

1. Goto Control Center =.> Hardware => Displays=> Monitor Preferences
2. From 'Resolution' drop-down list change from the default 1920 x 1080 to say 1024 x 768.
3. Screen turns black and stays black but eventually screen flickers and returns to normal. I repeatedly hit
the 'Escape' key which may or may not be hastening the screen's return to normal.

Note that after attempting to change the resolution, I have not left the screen black and immediately rebooted or I might be in your pickle rather than my
pickle of not being able to change resolution.

One thing you might consider once you have a working display again is to do the following:
1. Go to Control Center =.> Hardware => Appearance=> Appearance Preferences
2. Select the fonts tab and increase/change font size

Regards and good luck. Sorry to not be much help but no doubt someone will show up on their white horse.
