Found something strange. I believe I know what is causing it but figured I'd paste it here just in case. New to code and Python. Really like the Wing IDE. My computer has two monitors. One is the laptop monitor (1920x1080). That I have showing text at 125%. The second is a larger monitor at 1920x1080 but because it is larger the text is at 100%. When switching monitors, font rendering is way off.

I am including four screenshots. Screenshot 1: Wing IDE opened up on monitor 1 and viewed on monitor 1. (looks good) Screenshot 2: Wing IDE after I have dragged the IDE over to monitor 2. (fake spaces inserted) Screenshot 3: Wing IDE opened up on monitor 2 and viewed on monitor 2. (looks good) Screenshot 4: Wing IDE after I have dragged the IDE over to monitor 1. (fonts squished together)

For screenshot 2, you will notice the empty "spaces" (like the ones after the text 'new_states_2.json' , 'w')... I say "spaces" because I can put my cursor in there and use the left and right arrows to move 1 at a time. However, if I hit the delete key, all the space as gone and one of the characters is erased (could be the "s" in json, or the ending ', etc).

I am almost certain it is the 125% on monitor one and the 100% on monitor 2 setting. But this is something I have not seen before with any of my other programs (Notepad++, LibreOffice, Visual Studio, etc).

I do not know if there is a setting I can change to fix this or not. But regardless I thought I'd mention it in case it was something that could be addressed.

Thanks.

I'm including the screenshots as links because they are kind of large.

What version of Wing is this? Wing 7 may do a better job than Wing 6, but I'm not certain about whether it does in this case of dragging windows between monitors with different resolutions. Would be useful to know if Wing 7 also does this. Thanks!

Are you using Windows? If so, what version?
