Default Works including Windows 7

Just tested the HiDPI theme with Reaper 5.33pre7, and it works and looks quite good. Thanks.

Update: Looks like there still are some buggy GUI elements at 200% ó e.g. in MIDI editor, top toolbar is clipped by default (though fortunately can be revealed entirely by dragging its bottom edge down), and the plus/minus icons to the right of the controller dropdown at the bottom left are apparently unscaled at all. The HiDPI-related progress is impressive anyway though.

Given that itís possible to run HiDPI-compatible and HiDPI-incompatible plugins side by side in the same Reaper by running HiDPI-compatible plugins like Spire (that supports scaling up to 200%) in the so called Native mode (so that plugin inherits DPI mode of Reaper itself) while running HiDPI-incompatible plugins like Battery (that still doesnít support scaling) in a separate process (so that Windows automatically applies DPI scaling to those), Reaper is now a really good candidate to switch from hopeless Cubase.

Fwiw, as I said, HiDPI support is actually available in Reaper under Windows 7 either (not just 8.1+), just in a less convenient way: by editing the embedded manifest with a tool like Resource Hacker (separate-file extra manifest is unfortunately ignored by Windows).
