So the test dummy looks ok then.
Can you do one more test for me? Set the visual theme of SynthFont2 to just standard Windows.

Of course I can, I actually didn't know the standard Windows theme still remained! (That blue theme seems to be the default)

It's still mainly a problem with that theme unfortunately:

(I'm deliberately taking photos rather than screenshotting because it shows just how small they are much better)

It looks like "Setup and Options" is okay? Even the button icons look right. The icons in the main toolbar are too small, though.

One more question related to the DPI Aware dummy I sent you: is the size of the window correct?

Yes it is, and here's the image showing how small the box is!

The Piano Roll only looks a reasonable size because I zoomed in massively on it BTW

Would you be so kind and give this version a spin?

Hey Kenneth, Happy New Year!!

I've tested the version and it's certainly on the way to being DPI aware.

There's some problems I have with it, I'm trying to work out the best way to show you what my findings are.
