Since Adobe staff doesn't seem to pay much attention to this bug yet (some of them claim this is not a bug, others see the problems as resolved, etc.) I thought maybe we could "unite" and gather all the known issues, bugs and problems related to 4K resolution workflow (with windows scaling set to ON) here.
Hopefully this would bring as many people struggling with it as possible in one place, to help Adobe to take notice of this problem.
There are many unpleasant consequences of this bug, for now I will describe the ones that I'm aware of, but you are welcome to add anything new you find. I will try to update this first Post from time to time, so it stays up to date. The more bugs related to this problem we find, the higher the chance it will finally get fixed! Also, remember to use the feature request form, from what I understand, the more a specific feature or bug is mentioned, the faster it reaches to developers. You don't have to waste much of your precious time, just briefly describe the problem and paste a link to this post. Thanks!
NOTE: I am not a native english speaking person, so please forgive any grammar or spelling mistakes.
What seems to cause the problem:
Before we start, I would like to introduce two terms: "old fullscreen" and "new fullscreen", which in my opinion will make the further discussion much easier.
Let me describe this using an example scenario:
This seems to be the main root of this whole problem, and I suspect it lies beneath all the issues described below.
Here are the known issues, sorted from the most annoying to the least:

This is all I can think of for now, I hope this post will make it easier for people to find the right place discussing their problems with scaling, and for Adobe staff to finally look into it and fix it.
Feel free to describe other issues and bugs related to this one you find.
Below I attach some people who I think should find this post interesting, and some of Adobe people as well to bring them here

Yep, as noted above in my post, both Ae & Pr got hit with a nasty little bug.
Can simply choose to deselect your selection ... ignore it ... or even add to it. Lovely, eh?
And yea, it's been noted ... sigh.

Start Premiere with all screens in 100% (windows) scaling. After Premiere is started (with correct mercury transmit), change the scaling as you like. The fullscreen mercury transmit stays functional.
This is the only workaround to solve it, it seems so easy that is disappointing that Adobe doesn't fix it yet. Thank you.
Thanks! So annoying that a bug now 4 years old still hasn't been fixed
Thanks for that fix, works for me in some way - downside is the UI is not sharp anymore in the main screen. Nonetheless it works. Is there still no other solution?
