I thought I would start a new thread on this as my final message was getting somewhat lost in the previous thread and starting to go off topic from the original title

I've downloaded the Visual Studio Community Edition 2017 and tried to recreate the sacred texts Inventory Item view as closely as I could. It's not pixel perfect at 100% and VB text boxes are one pixel shallower than DF forms

I could not find an equivalent of Container3d in VB (but I only looked very briefly)

But you can see when it is scaled to 125% you have two quite different results

I would argue the VB version is 'too wide' overall (more like 132% than 125%) BUT everything seems to fit 'better' relative to each other

I addition to what I said before .... You can also see in DF the width of the description field and the view as a whole has barely changed width. In approximate measurements the description field is .....

342px VB & DF 100%
427px Is what one would expect the 125% scale to be (342*1.25)
346px DF 125%
461px VB 125%
