will be correct. I find that the scaling is fine as long as I set the internal screen to OFF in this config and ALWAYS boot up docked. Android Studio is a great example: It's poorly made and designed, and aside from the rampant performance and reliability problems, its inability to handle high DPI displays remains my major stumbling No problem with Windows 8.1 or 7 so I blame Windows 10. 1477409771 0 | Reply Waethorn Alpha Member #2235 - 2 months ago In reply to rejohnson: A lot can

Old copies of Photoshop apparently lie and say they are HiDpi aware when they are truly not.
