So I’ve gone through all the threads on the issues with scaling for high-DSP monitors, and I’m aware that many or most of these issues stem from limitations with the Qt framework (and until that’s sorted, there’s little remedy for these things), but I’m wondering if anyone’s run into this specific issue:
When I open the VST window for Noteperformer on a 4K monitor (with Windows scaling set to 150%), the contents of the window have scaled, but the window has not, and since the window isn’t adjustable, it looks like the attached pic. Here’s the curious part. While the graphics have scaled, all the actual underlying interactable buttons and sliders are in the same place, and can be controlled by clicking where they should be. It’s obviously not really feasible to work with it this way. Here’s the kicker though. I know that changing the scaling to 100% makes it temporarily workable (I say temporarily because the rest of Dorico is then a little too small to be comfortable), but sometimes, even at 150% scaling, it will automatically fix itself (completely normal, everything looks and works the way it should). I cannot figure out for the life of me what it is that causes this to happen, but I’d really like to know.
I know that in Halion, fixing some window size issues is possible by pressing ‘e’, and so I’ve tried that and literally everything else I can think of (all manner of maximizing and minimizing, switching back and forth between scaling percentages, and the like), but I’m still unable to put my finger on what it is that is causing it to spontaneously fix itself. None of those specific methods seem to be it. It really just happens sometimes. I’ll be working, and I’ll switch back to the VST window, and it has normalized itself in my absence.
Has anyone else run into this, and, if so, have you happened to stumble upon how to reliably correct it?
Edit: And of course, by high-DSP, I mean high-DPI. Doh
