Resolution Messing with LabVIEW Pop-up Menus

Issue Details

When setting the external monitor scaling to 125%, opening LabVIEW on the primary monitor, pulling up any window, dragging that window to the external monitor, and clicking on anything that makes a pop up makes the popup menu/window appears to rthe right, it is always offset to the right.
If I change the scaling to 150% or greater, the menu doesn't even appear on the screen because it's offset so far to the right.



Unfortunately, this sometimes happens depending on the version of LabVIEW or due to the type of primary/external monitor. However there are some workarounds:

- Change the resolution of the primary monitor to match the external monitor
- Rather than scaling the main monitor, I adjusted to a resolution that preserved the aspect ratio but was equivalent to a 150% scale up
