High DPI screen scaling doesn't work well with SSMS 2016 RC3
High DPI screen scaling doesn't work well with SSMS 2016 RC3.
The source control screen doesn't fill the entire work area, but just takes up a small rectangle in the top left (approximately 50% x 50% of the work area).
This occurs on a 3840x2160 pixel screen, SSMS version 13.0.14000.36, red gate source control version184.108.40.2064 standard
This problem should be resolved in version 5.8.3, because we’ve changed the UI technology used on the setup, migrations, and object locking tabs.

The latest update fixes the UI sizing, but it is blurry on my 27 inch 4K monitor at 175% sizing on Windows 10 Enterprise. In windows, this blurriness can be fixed in a C# program as follows:
static void Main()
if (Environment.OSVersion.Version.Major >= 6)
private static extern bool SetProcessDPIAware();

I have the same issue on my Surface Pro 4.

I also get problems on the same resolution on SQL 2014 - it's actually impossible to deal with merges because you cant see parts of the UI. It's very difficult to see or click on the link to view the migration script if/when it fails.
This is also extremly important to us. We are using Apple MacBook Pro's with high dpi displays.
