Description

My new laptop (Dell XPS 13) has a 4K display and I cannot use Management Studio! Dialogs don't render correctly..in fact the restore database one is just a large empty dialog box! This is not an aesthetic issue, it is a functional one and is stopping me from doing my work. I've seen previous reports like this being closed as "Won't fix" and I don't think that is acceptable.

Please fix this in SQL 2014 SP1.

Any update on this? There are tons of 4k computers out there now that SSMS will not even run on.
