Ubuntu 18.10 - Oversized icons / overlaps on UI?

Went to do another bit of editing today, been about 4 days since I last did some.

Launched and ended up with my UI looking like the attached image.

Tried removing both .local and .config instances of Meltytech folders but still the same.

Could Shotcut be reading a bad DPI setting somewhere from my system perhaps?

EDIT: Seems like xrandr is reporting all manner of strange data for my displays, so definitely the source of the problem. Does Shotcut offer a way to ignore the system dpi/resolution settings?

Set environment variable QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR=0
If you need help with that search this forum for “QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR” to get suggestions for different ways to do that.


Fantastic, that did it for me. Greatly appreciated.
