our company is slowly rolling out high-DPI laptops to our users. On such devices, Windows automatically enables DPI scaling, using a value of 125% or 150%, depending on the screen's resolution. In combination with an external (unscaled) monitor, this causes our application, to appear blurry on the scaled screen.
Windows has built-in functionality to reduce the blurring, however, this only works on the main screen. If you connect a secondary screen and set that as your main screen, the application will always appear blurry on the laptop screen.
My understanding of the topic is that WPF is DPI aware - but on the system level. So it does not cope well with monitors that have different DPI settings. However, I found a tutorial on Microsoft Docs (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/win32/hidpi/declaring-managed-apps-dpi-aware?redirectedfrom=MSDN), hinting that it is possible to make WPF windows per-monitor DPI aware. Unfortunately, this workaround requires you to inherit your window class from their utility class.
Since all of our windows already inherit from RadWindow, I have no chance to include this without copying either their base class or RadWindow. Having RadWindow support per-monitor DPI awareness would be a great feature to have. Or is there already a way to support this?

PS: Why does the first feature form in the feature request workflow (the one, where it first searches for similar requests) not let me select the control/area I am searching for like the one for private tickets? I almost submitted this request for the Area "All (Multiple Controls)" because of that.
