This can happen depending on your Windows display scale % not a multiple of 100 (fractional). For example, I reproduce it with 125% only on my system. In this version, we changed the handling of fractional display scaling to fix more important bugs with text size handling in both the Text: Rich video filter and Glaxnimate. As a result, there were some bad side effects more noticeably in the menus. However, those are being changed in the next version in a way that fixes menus as a side benefit.

Your can be addressed by running Shotcut with a command line option:

  • shotcut --QT_SCALE_FACTOR 1
  • shotcut --QT_SCALE_FACTOR_ROUNDING_POLICY RoundPreferFloor

Otherwise, the real must fix must wait until we can upgrade the GUI library we use to the next major version, which is a big project currently in progress.

P.S. If you change your Windows display scale setting you must log out of Windows and log back in for it to affect Shotcut. Or reboot.
