Can substance support DPI scaling like PS? My monitor is 4K


Same issue for me, I have an expensive new setup and I can't (easily) use Substance Painter now with my new monitor! (UI is either too small or too big).

Can someone who works for the company with knowledge please reply to us and let us know;
1. Is there any know work around even if it's hacky - please give details if possible, not links.
2. Is there a planned fix and release schedule - if so please share it.

I've researched this a bit and users seem to have been asking for a fix since 2016. It's concernig that 4 yrs have passed and I have the same issue.

Some posts indicated that the problem is with Qt (interface building framework under the hood) and can't be fixed this end. Perhaps the interface needs re-writing in something more capable?

Please let me know what I should do at this stage, short of cancelling my subscription and finding a new solution - not something I want to do as I've invested in this software - but it doesn't work within my pipeline of other art tools that are brilliant on a large 4k monitor.

Hopefully Substance wil update to QT 5.14 soon, there have been some major improvements in fractional scaling.

Working in 4k with only a Wacom as input, I'm finding it VERY difficult to grab hold of scroll bars in all the UI across Substance products.
