    OIC, is it completely unusable or just some stuff missing?
    I can't scroll horizontally on the right window, I can't access the external colors button. What does that do anyway? Only solution is to reduce DPI, logout and then reopen it.

    Same issue unfortunately
    You need to look at your Windows graphics settings, and those for whatever graphics card(or integrated graphics settings), as SMACC works just fine.

    And no, when in Aero mode it doesn't change the background color of Explorer.exe or the Control Panel, but it does on system32 apps.

    But SMACC is really good when trying to set up a high contrast theme.

    Thanx Cliff.. mapping was bit weird, guessing which thingies match which - lots of trial and error -- let me know if I got it wrong.

    External allows you to get colours from outside the app...

    Pity you have these issues -- unfortunately I can't build a fix into the app.

    Try SMACC's properties and change the default DPI handling

    Please test if this version is DPI-aware.

    NB: Requires minimum .Net Framework 4.7 -- but targets 4.7.2.

    I find the DPI aware version makes the text slightly clearer/sharper on my 4K screen.

    Thanx Cliff

    I added a few more DPI aware settings as the lists were not being scaled correctly - please see SMACC6951.34168

    I don't have a high res monitor to test - also External colours needs to be tested on scaling above 175% - it has to get the correct pixel otherwise the colour will be incorrect.
