Loving the Beta thank you L&L.

While using Windows in a zoomed desktop mode (175% - for use on a big screen TV) - the dictionary dialogue box is too big to click OK or apply. When you try to resize the dialogue box using the mouse/top left corner of box, the box disappears! It shows on the taskbar, but won't come back and forces a re start of the application.

During that process I also noticed (but I think this is an already raised issue) that spell check is picking up chunks of words such as 'isn' from the phrase 'isn't' and so on.

Regards

Chris

Thanks for the report. What is your display resolution? We're investigating what seems to be a display scaling issue whereby Scrivener's UI is much larger than it should be at relatively low percentages, and the cases where I've seen this have been on machines defaulting to about 150% Windows display scaling but without very high resolution. You might try deselecting "Enable High DPI mode" in File > Options > General and then restarting Scrivener to see if that helps matters.

(As a comparison, the spelling dialog is by default only about a third of the screen height on my PC running Win 10 at 200% scaling on a 3360x2100 resolution, and it's easily resizable, so the issue is definitely specific to certain setups.)

Yes, this is filed, thanks!
