Hello there.
I'm pretty new to the Java environment and Eclipse plug-ins in general. I'm having an issue with the WindowBuilder JFrame preview: the frame doesn't fully show up on the right side while having a 125% High-DPI scaling for my Windows 10 laptop, but gets displayed properly when going back to 100% scaling (although every app gets smaller and text harder to read, using a notebook with a small FHD display). Is there a way to fix the issue while keeping the 125% scale (or keep Eclipse at 100% scaling at least)? Thanks for your time.

And apologies for my poor English knowledge.

Perhaps the stuff described here will help:

That being said, I too use 125% scaling on Windows and for me that only affects font sizes, but I don't use WindowBuilder...

Note that this is a problem with AWT, not SWT. I'm seeing a similar problem with an AWT application. At first I thought this was an issue with JOGL, but now I'm more convinced it's a problem with AWT. See
I've been working with the debugger trying to track down the resize event, and I notice that when the JFrame is resized, it doesn't get set to the same size as its internal 'peer', which has the correct outer frame size.
