A request to rethink VST Plugin scaling (windows 10) in UHD environments.

Hi, I would like to request a better approach to the handling of plugins that do not have inbuilt resizing. I am using an HD resolution of 3840 x 2160 with app scaling set at 150% on a Windows 10 OS. Many of the plugins I use, appear too small to use comfortably, and do not respond well to S1's DPI scaling; either they break or lose functionality. Many do work with DPI scaling but the upscale is nominal. Raising Windows app scaling resizes S1 but the plugins remain the same size (small).

I have numerous DAWs - S1 is my default goto - and they all handle plugin sizes far superior to S1 at the moment. But hopefully not for long ... laugh

I'm using the same resolution and having the same issue.  Let me know if you find a fix, I shall do the same.  bRAD

I somehow feel that one of the issues that makes it hard(er) to solve in Studio One is that it shows all plugins (dpi-aware and unaware) in tabs in one window. I guess this makes it hard to address scaling on a per-plugin basis. But hopefully PreSonus finds a way because more than half of my plugins are hardly usable now that I switched to a 4k monitor.
