From the version 2019.4.1, we added support for HiDPI in the standalone report designer. The report designer automatically adapts to the scaling set in the system. However, sometimes when you change the scaling in the system, the report designer does not automatically ajust to new parameters. In this case, you should check the settings in the report designer and file or add a scaling code to your application.
Please note that after setting a new value for scaling, you must reboot the operating system. Follow the instructions below, if this does not occur after the automatic adaptation of the designer.

Please note! After setting a new scale value, you must reboot the operating system. If, after the automatic adaptation of the designer, the new scale was not applied, follow the instructions below.
