Zoom doesn't automatically change after moving application to another display, and gets worse after moving it back

Recommended Posts

Windows 10 Home 1809, Designer 1.7.0.231.

I've just noticed the following problem:
* Open Designer on my main monitor, basic HD, nothing fancy (scale at 100%);
* Create a new document and put a 2 inch square on it;
* Zoom to 100%;
* Measure square, it's 2 inches square - as expected;
* Move Designer window to laptop display, basic HD, just whatever came built-in (scale 125%);
* Measure square, it's now close to 1 and 6/8ths of an inch square - not great, but easily fixed;
* Zoom to 100%;
* Measure square, it's 2 inches square again - as expected;
* Move Designer window back to main monitor;
* Measure square, it's now just under 2 and a half inches square - but we should be able to fix that;
* Zoom to 100% and...  oh dear, that's wrong;
* Measure square, it's now just under 3 and 1/8ths of an inch - some thing has gone wrong somewhere.
And no amount of re-zooming, minimising the application, or anything else I have tried will fix it, it stays looking too big until I re-launch the application.
Just saving the document, closing it, and then re-loading it doesn't fix the problem, I've got to bounce Designer entirely.
Designer is set to use the built-in - default - Intel GPU.

Hi GarryP,

I'm having some trouble reproducing this issue. Would it be possible to provide a screen recording at all?

That might take a while to organise as I've never recorded dual monitors before.
I've just looked at a video on how to do it with Open Broadcaster - which I've never used before - and it looks a bit fiddly.
Is there any particular bit of the process you need to see?
