Hello. For the first time during my 10 year-long wannabe-programming I stumbled into such a situation. I started a project at home and made it's main window fullscreen. My home mon is 1920. Now at work my mon is 1366. So I realized that my main form is cut in IDE, and cut in runtime. Trying setting it's width and heigth to fullhd in IDE thinking like you know you can stretch things in paint :) and scroll it, I thought it would work here, but no :(.
Before this I always worked on the same-sized monitors... It is very sad that nothing can be done with this.

No consolation but if you think that's bad wait until you hit 100% vs 125% vs 150% screen sizing or moving between "normal" screens and a 4k one.

My answer to this sort of problem is ElasticForm which is no longer supported (or supplied)

I'm not saying that's a problem, no, but a big surprise. Most part of the surprise was that even the IDE cuts the form according to current monitor max res scale...
