Hello,

In the most recent major version you've added support for multiple monitors with different DPI settings by a introducing an ADXDPIChanged event on for instance a WordTaskPane.

In our add-in we also use WinForms, and as far as I can tell, there isn't any built-in support to
detect dpi changes in this case. Am I correct? If so, are you planning on adding this in the near future?

Thanks in advance,
Alexander

Hello Alexander,

We could provide an event that occurs when the host application's window is moved to another monitor but I assume you don't need it. If so, you should modify the code of your forms according to the information they provide on these pages:
