Magnifier and Cursor do not line up

The subject line says it. Quite annoying. Uninstalled and reinstalled, same problem. Closed all programs but it, closed it, reopened, same problem.

 As an example, if I put my cursor in the middle of the 5th chip on the first row, the magnifier shows me the letter P in the word "chips" above that line.

I've been using this software for, like, ever and I'd hate to give it up.

Win7, 64bit

Any fix for this issue yet? Really liked this tool but now with my new HD screen this is useless.

The problem with 4K is - on a 3840x2160 resolution Windows has to be completely sized up otherwise the letters and everything else would be much to small.

But this Windows resizing (say 150%) causes all color pickers I know to calculate the wrong mouse position - most left up position is ok but most right down shows exactly the 150% left-above pixel.

Hey ICONICO - be the first to support 4K screens and train ColorPic to get the right mouse position in an up-sized Windows. Rem. in a not too far future nearly everybody will have 4K.. :-)

This happens normally if Windows is scaled, e.g. on a notebook or 4K monitor (125%, 150%...).
I found this solution now, after do so ColorPick has (original) small letters but will hit now the pixel under the mouse:

To fix this problem, right-click the desktop application’s shortcut and select Properties. If the application is on the taskbar, right-click the taskbar icon, right-click the application’s name, and select Properties.

Click the Compatibility tab and click the “Disable display scaling on high DPI settings” checkbox. After you do, close the application and re-open it.
