I've read that QHD+ resolution monitors like the Dell Precision m3800 with a 3200x1800 resolution screen are having scaling issues with Windows 8, and even 8.1. Some programs scale correctly, but I have specifically heard Adobe programs including Adobe After Effects do NOT scale correctly.
Are there plans to fix this with the next Windows release? Or a patch before then?
Any rough estimate as to when that would be?
Does it work at the moment to scale the monitor down to a lower resolution to fix it? Is it in fact tested and not just assumed. (I have no way of checking and can't get a straight answer)
I want to buy this laptop soon, but I need it for After Effects and if it's not usable, it won't be a good buy. Would love to have some concret answers!
The CC versions of Adobe programs support high-DPI displays, but not older ones. If you use an older version, this won't change. Nobody goes back to old code.
Oh really? That's great! Because that's what I have!
We have not done the work for high-DPI monitors for Windows yet. We did the work for high-DPI for Mac last year. We'll be working on high-DPI for Windows this year.
