Archicad 26 fails at 4K

The title says it all (menu entries are only half the size of the main menu title).

I found the solution: Restart of Windows! AC seems to have problems to recognize if the display resolution and/or the display factor has changed. So the solution is the same as in the good old Windows 95/98-days: restart the computer after changing the display resolution!

If you have to restart Windows for it to work, then how is it Archicad's problem?

If it was only Archicad's problem, then I suppose restarting Archicad would fix it.

If you have to restart Windows, then I suppose it is Windows' problem, don't you think?

It's AC's problem, because after changing the screen resolution and (re-)starting AC after that change AC show’s that behavior. Only a reboot fixed the problem.

If restarting Archicad does not fix it, then why is it Archicad's fault?

Maybe it is a system setting that is set at boot time, and which Archicad reads. And until you reboot the system, Archicad will keep reading the wrong system value (because it will only change after a reboot)?

I am just guessing here, but this is what seems logical to me.
