    Outlook, Excel, Word, OneNote, etc - none of them support high DPI to low DPI transitioning over a surface dock, etc. I worked with WDG to debug the surface dock only to find the issue is specific to Office apps. They've said this is an "Office Issue" that needs to be fixed. I have a long email thread with WDG on this from a closed feedback item - please contact me and I'll fwd the thread. This is a really poopy experience for users and seems to be in someones blind sport here - I want to try and connect the dots if possible because this is a pretty bad user experience (it makes you think your vision sucks as a user because all of office is blurry)

    0. Use a high dpi device (SP4, etc)
    1. Press Windows + Shift + S (to capture a onenote screenshot)
    2. Now paste this into outlook or word

    The image is now 200% - I would expect it to scale down to 100% instead of being massive.

    It's hard to tell if this a OneNote or Outlook/Word issue but it's kind of annoying as I do a lot of screenshot captures on my device.
