Summary0000255: UI text scaling on high DPI screen incorrect
DescriptionI use QET on a high DPI screen under Windows 10. The scaling for Text and apps on that screen is set to 200%.

In QET the icons and some text elements of the UI are scaled correctly while some other texts are not. See screenshot attached. There for example The main menu and the list on the left are correct and the labels on the tabs are too small.
TagsNo tags attached.

Have you tried HDPI options?

These settings do not seem to have any effect on the texts in UI widgets. I am not sure what they actually are supposed to do. Is this about the display in the drawing area?

Correctly scaled are the main menu, the title bars on the panels and the tree views on the panels. Not scaled are the labels on tabs, toolbars and buttons, and the texts in input boxes, drop down boxes and so on. Icons and controls like check boxes are scaled correctly while their labels are not.

Interestingly, when I start QET on a normal resolution screen and then move it to a high DPI screen all texts are scaled correctly, but, icons are not.

And then, when I start QET on the high DPI screen set to 100 % scaling, and change the scaling factor to 200 % afterwards, everything seems to be as it should be. So this could be a workaround.
