Pen tool controls too small on high DPI displays

The pen tool is practically unusable on something like my 13.5" Surface Book 2 + Corel Painter 2022 (and and all past versions I presume). The reason being the curve controls and nodes are so tiny on those dense pixel displays that it's not possible to click on them (or touch them with a pen tip). It doesn't seem like this part of the application respects Windows' graphics scaling (I have mine at the OS recommended 200%) even though the painter UI in general does.

A laptop capable of running Painter 2022 effectively will likely be a high end one and high DPI screens are likely very common in this category of machine. As it is if I need to do some vector work I need to move the image to Photoshop or wait until I return to my desktop where I have a lower resolution monitor. It's ironic that I have to use older equipment to use a feature!

  • I am having the same issue on my monitor.  The Corel Painter shape handles are WAY too small (even when set to "Big Handles") to grab and move efficiently. Thank you for the suggestion of using Photoshop to manage vector objects for now.   Does anyone know if Corel is aware of this defect? If not, where can I report it to them?
