    There doesn’t seem to be anything addressing the breaking of HiDPI screen support which the Win 10 Anniversary Update caused: It makes the product really unusable for peopel with HiDPI screens, Win 10, and all updates installed. Hopefully this will be fixed in the next RC.

        Thanks. 🙂 I really love PyCharm. It’s how I relax in the evening from a long day of .NET!

        Looks like my new issue was merged into a HiDPI issue number that was opened in 2014. I guess if JetBrains doesn’t intend to invest in working on HiDPI monitors, people with Surface Books etc will simply need to move on to a new toolchain. 🙁 Sad news.
