  1. Hi, This is a fairly common bug in older software, so I'm hoping you can fix it in Affinity Designer soon. In Windows 10 they changed the way scaling works on high DPI monitors. When using monitors with a high resolution on a small screen, it is often recommended to set the scaling level to 125% or more, however this causes blurring of text even inside of some of the native Windows Apps, making it pretty useless as an option. However, unless one does this, the font sizes in the panels of Affinity Designer are tiny, too small to comfortably read. Here is a link to an article which explains the problem quite well: While the issue itself might be attributed to Microsoft, the simple fact is that they may never fix it, which means that program developers need to fix it on their end to be compatible with Windows 10. If you search around the internet there are literally 1000's of articles telling people that to fix the scaling issue on HDPI monitors, you need to increase the scale factor, but this is a nightmare because of the way it affects so many other programs. Please fix this in Affinity. It can be done. I don't know where the latest information for this is, but here is what I could find so far:
