General Tab overlapping

No, I have to disagree with you here, Keloran. :( If you have set the High DPI setting in Windows, the text still overlaps in some areas. And I'm running @ 1920x1200, so if anyone has loads of desktop space available, it ought to be me. Even fully maximized the problem is still exhibited by the latest µTorrent version. Let me show you a screenshot...they say an image is worth a thousand words (text overlap is underlined with red): ;)

It can also happen if you use a large DPI Setting. I have a Dell D800 and the LCD is set to 1920x1200 screen resolution, and in order to read, I need to set the DPI setting to Large size (120 DPI), which is 125% normal size. Not even resizing the app window will correct it. Other applications I've seen also have these problems.

@abbad0n: Yeah, been reported several times before (*hint*1c3d0g's post above*hint*) =P

Actually I started writing my post before 1c3d0g put up their post, but got sidetracked by real life. When I came back and finished my post, I then saw the other entries. Damn space time continuum. :P

Windows should've defaulted to this setting (120 DPI), then we wouldn't be having these problems. It seems people with bad eye-sight always get the wrong end of the stick... :(

@Piak: We've already seen a screenshot =|

@1c3d0g: More people actually use the lower DPIs than higher DPIs, so I'm unsure why a majority has to switch their DPIs instead of the other way around. The reason this problem was overlooked was because less people use higher DPIs (including the devs) =P

Shankar: same here. :| They'll fix it eventually, we just need to be patient. :)

That's good to know. I've oodles of patience if I knew that a fix would come eventually (very much preferably in this decade, though). :-)

OTOH, I've encountered several shareware/freeware authors who, when told about this bug, simply blew me off with a variation on the following:

"Tough luck. It's your fault for using large DPI when 9 out of 10 users have no such complaints. Get back in line or use something else." That, or I get the silent/ignore treatment. I can't decide which is worse. Yes, I know that especially in the case of freeware, the developers are traditionally held to the "no obligations since they don't get paid" position. Obviously, I disagree. There are ethical/moral standards and freeware is no way inferior to paidware in concept.

Just my 2 $0.02 :-)
