1.4.5 - draw - eyedropper - distorted cursor on high DPI screen

Post by zenden »

XnView: MP 1.4.5 - 64-bit
OS: Windows 11, 8.1 - 64-bit

Mouse cursor looks distorted on high DPI screen (scaling 125%).

It looks better on 150% scaling, but it's impossible to choose the right color.

Effect: It is hard to choose a color with such a cursor.

To reproduce:
1. Set screen scaling in Windows to 125%, log out & log in
2. Open any image file in XnView MP
3. Go to main menu Image -> Draw ... (or press Shift+D)
4. Choose Eyedropper on the toolbar
5. Try to choose a color from the image

Actual behaviour (bug): Eyedropper cursor looks distorted and ugly. I can't choose the right color in the picture.

Expected behaviour: cursor looks normally and correct color is chosen
