I'm getting some weird side effects when changing interface scale with ui mods on - are they at all compatible?
Interface/UI Scale and UI mods
The scaling is relatively new, like in the last 1-2 years, so it's not surprising older UI mods wouldn't have been designed with scaling in mind
That isn't correct - any UI that uses the default functions helper functions for UI, namely those in LayoutHelpers.lua, will scale properly. Only when people invented their own functions the scaling is not taken into account by default.
I do not think the word 'lazy' is correct here - it is more people just not knowing that the helper file exists. If they did, it would scale automatically just like the rest of the UI.
A work of art is never finished, merely abandoned
