In a HiDPI environment On a Windows 10 machine with scaling enabled I cannot hit singles pixels drawing directly with the GC when the line width is set to 0. Windows will default to a scaling of 200% in a 4k setup by default.

As a result rectangles cannot be painted directly next to other. When drawing lines there will always be a an empty line in between. Painting dots/pixels directly next to each other is not possible

Are we doing something wrong or missing something? Is this a known issue? We would expect to still be able to paint on each pixel. This also means that code is not portable between system with and without scaling.


Furthermore when drawing rounded rectangles or paths directly with the GC the results differ depending if scaling is enabled or not.


We made images trying to illustrate the issue. Attached is also the code we used to create the dummy application.


Has anybody had the same problem? Is there a workaround?

Yes, I see problems with drawing on HiDPI as well. Did you ever file a bug for this?
