MMEX GUI extremely small on MS Surface Pro 4

MMEX v1.2.3 64-bit on Microsoft Surface Pro 4

The MMEX GUI is so small on the Surface Pro 4 high resolution display it is hardly legible. I enclose here a couple of screen captures for your reference. I experimented with “Disable display scaling on high DPI settings” and “General Display Scaling” to no avail. Has anyone come across similar reports from other Surface Pro users? This display defect causes truncation of digits. As a result making the MMEX practically unusable on the Surface Pro. I look forward to a fix for this.

Apparently a number of other software applications are also having problem scaling in high DPI displays. The workaround described here worked beautifully for MMEX on the Surface Pro 4. The site also explained what caused the problem. It is a workaround so ultimately the application has to be fixed.
