Screenshot of incorrect rendering

When font sizes in Windows (DPI) are set to anything other than 100% the designer renders incorrectly (see attachment).

I would like to add that it seems like the mouse coordinates are scaled incorrectly as well, as I sometimes have problems selecting an element. This is making it very hard if not impossible to actually use the designer without resetting to 100% dpi, which in my case will make text too small.

Already fixed.
