LR dpi scaling - fonts/sliders too small

Hi all, so I just got a new screen.  Coming from a 1920x1200, 24" to a 27" running at 2560x1440.  I've found that everything is too small in windows, so I set scaling to 125%.  Looks good.  OK, so now my issue is LR.  It's doesn't appear to be scaling.  The interface and sliders are too small.  I found a font setting, and medium is too small, while large it too big.  Also, I found how to override high dpi settings and force LR to use the system setting.  This actually looks pretty good, but then the fonts and sliders are blurry.

 

I found a post about editing the prefs file, but I seem to have lost it.  Is it possible to edit the prefs file and make the fonts an in-between size?  Smaller than large, but larger than medium?

 

Thanks!

After all those years, with LR 13.3 around meanwhile, Lightroom is still nat able to scale to 125%. What a shame, as this is quite a common scaling factor that Windows is supporting for years now.

I found this trick where you can edit the config file and put in a custom size.  I've been using 120%.  Seems to work OK.  It's a shame Adobe doesn't make it easier to do this....
