Description

When Windows is set to use high DPI scaling (e.g. 125%), VS2012 Workflow Designer has many quirks when trying to use the Base Activity Library activity designers.
For example, editing the field of "Target Object" on the "Invoke Method" activity designer or the "Condition" field on the designer of "If", "While", "DoWhile" etc. causes these fields to blink, vanish or other weird results making the WF designer impossible to use.

Hi,
Just wanted to add that I've also reproduced this behavior on a Windows 8 machine with VS2012.
Also note that the VS2010 WF designer works flawlessly under an identical scenario.
