Problem Description
When construct projects are exported and executed or executed out of construct while the scaleing settings of windows are above 100% the font size of every Text is reduced.

Attach a Capx

Description of Capx
Small project where the Text should be displayed about as long as the sprite.

Steps to Reproduce Bug
  • Go to the display settings and set scaling to 200%
  • Windows will tell you that you should log out, do that and log in again
  • Open the capx file and execute

Observed Result
The length of the text is now smaller than the sprite width. Like in this image:

Image 200%

Expected Result
The length of the Text should be about as long as the sprite:

Image 100%

(You can try this by setting the scaling back to 100% and execute.)

Affected Browsers
  • FireFox: (YES)
  • Internet Explorer: (YES)
  • Edge: (YES)
  • Chrome: (YES)

Operating System and Service Pack
Windows 10

Construct 2 Version ID
Release 216 (64 Bit)

Further observations
  • Standart font size of Text at 100% is 12, at 200% is 6 within the editor
  • On 100% exported projects (as html5 or windows store app) work fine on 200%

There's a fix aimed at resolving this in r219. Could you let me know if it works for you?
