can't see npc text boxes when client is half screen

A lot of the time I like to use the Windows 7+ snap-the-window-to-half-the-screen feature but I noticed that when I try to talk to npcs, there is no text box.  Maximizing the window doesn't make it show up, but it does if I talk to the NPC while maximized.  I also can't see the options buttons when half screen either.  Makes it harder to Netflix and play :(

Yeah, I was going to ask how on earth you could do either thing in a half-size window.

 

I couldn't replicate the thing, care to post a screenshot?

Hmm ok I'll post some when I get home.  I wonder if my dpi scaling has something to do with this, I'll check that too

At the bank, notice no icons in the upper right eitherno%20text%20from%20npcs_zpsxquzol2r.png

 

Here you can see that it is half screem

And here is what it looks like if I open it maximized:

Not really sure what else to try, though I havent restarted since I changed the DPI Scaling (it was at 200%, I set it back to 100% for testing which is tiny on this screen)

Hmm so it does seem to be the DPI scaling...when I set it to 175% it seems to work correctly.  Gah
