Hi,  I am new to the forum so apologies if this has been answered but I didn't see any thing. I'm not particularly new to Dragon products having used them since about 1995. I have always used Dragon with the tray icon (it's the least visually intrusive option for the tools I use) and since updating to 15.61 it looks like they removed all of the menu options except for exit and open?   Nuance have never been (IMO) particularly good with UI.  I use them for the voice recognition, but it has been manageable. One of the problems they have never solved for me is getting screen scaling correct (the splash screens are tiny on a high resolution screen).  Unfortunately with the latest update they have extended this incompetence to the main UI so if I open it up floating (it's disastrous docked - an unusable then strip along the top), but even floating it's barely readable. Am I going crazy, is there some feature I'm missing or are they just not doing basic quality control when they release the stuff? I would gladly except something with 1/10 of the features if they could just reliably dictate into notepad with a manageable user interface

Floating UI - greatly magnified here - it's barely readable on a 4k monitor, text is all clipped, you can't resize any of the windows,  they disable the maximize window button

Docked to the top - almost readable here but 1/8 inch on actual monitor

on the left of the screen - more text you can't read at monitor scale

I'm at my wits end with this product - I need voice dictation but every other aspect of the product is just utterly broken.
