      Description

      The problem: Qt Creator panels are too small on virtualized Windows 8.1 (Parallels) on Retina display. The content looks too small even though Windows (Window frames, editor, code in the editor) are drawn correctly. I have added an image to support my problem: The content of the panel is however looking good, the window frame is looking quite big, but the problem is the opposite: the frame is rendered correctly and the content is too small...

      I tried to do something with it: The only thing that worked, was scaling the whole display. Everything (I mean whole Windows 8.1) looked big, but the panels had the right size.

      It is hard to imagine unless you will try it yourself.
