Screenshot showing wrong dropdwon area size

Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:
(UI scaling should be 100% and Find Toolbar Locked
from last session)
1. Open empty new writer document with
2. Menu {Tools ► Options ► View ► Scaling = 200%  ► ok}
   » UI elements size increases, looks horribly ugly
   BTW: is lost limitation to scaling = 130% intended?
3.  Menu {Window ► New}
   » UI elements now look more or less fine, but 
     Character size dropdown in Standard toolbar still has old
     small size 100%
4. Menu {Tools ► Options ► View ► Scaling = 80%  ► ok}
   » UI elements size decrease
    Bug: Dropdowns will have kept old 200% size
5.  Menu {Window ► New}
    Bug: Everything in UI has become smaller except 
         Character Size dropdown
6. Menu {Tools ► Options ► View ► Scaling = 81%  ► ok}
   » Now also Character size dropdown will have a small size

Already broken in 4.3, seemed more or less ok with 4.2

Operating System: Windows 7
Version: release
Last worked in: release

I repro step 4, but in all the steps the character size dropdown is not exceptional.

Comment 7 Thomas Lendo 2020-08-14 22:01:30 UTC
Scaling isn't anymore in LibO (see bBug 101646 - UI option "Scaling" was removed) but also with Windows own scaling I couldn't see any problem.

Closing as WORKSFORME.
