Windows Scaling produces text size Bug

From the Asset Store
Change delay, create new lines, "backspace" the text
  • Problem Description

    When construct projects are exported and executed or executed out of construct while the scaleing settings of windows are above 100% the font size of every Text is reduced.

    Attach a Capx

    TextSizeTest

    Description of Capx

    Small project where the Text should be displayed about as long as the sprite.

    Steps to Reproduce Bug

    • Go to the display settings and set scaling to 200%
    • Windows will tell you that you should log out, do that and log in again
    • Open the capx file and execute

    Observed Result

    The length of the text is now smaller than the sprite width. Like in this image:

    Image 200%

    Expected Result

    The length of the Text should be about as long as the sprite:

    Image 100%

    (You can try this by setting the scaling back to 100% and execute.)
