I'm having some issues with the proper display of some Java based applications. I use my Yoga 910 at the Windows recommended resolution of 3840 x 2160 and have it also set to scale the display of items to 300% which works quite well for most applications.
However, for some reason some Java based applications simply do not scale the text making it practically impossible to use them without having to change the resolution and downgrade from 4K display. I've tried the same application on a different machine also with a 4K display, a Dell XPS 13 and it scales as expected, so it isn't likely the application. I suspect that it is somehow tied to my display adapter, but can't find a way troubleshoot this.
Has anyone else run across this issue?

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.
Try to download the Video and Chipset drivers for the unit from the support page.
See if you can update any of the drivers. Make sure to reboot after an update.
Have you tried running them in administrator mode? It might make a difference.
Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.

I had the latest driver installed, usually I apply all drivers and updates as within a few days of them being published. It appears that the issue is somehow related to the combination of my Java configuration and the display adapter settings. Applications that use the JavaFX framework seem to be HighDPI aware, but some applications in Swing don't behave the same way, and do not scale at all. I suspect that there is some registry setting of Java configuration parameter that can be used to fix this behavior, but I haven't managed to find it yet.
