I have a laptop with an high res screen (3200x1800) and when I open some dialogs or all table views the characters exceeds the dimension of boxes.

See the attached files.

There is some workaround or fix for this issue?

Thanks in advance.

Hi all, after a looong research over my problem I finally found my answer!!! This workaround works great, it solves the small icon problem and the too small height of rows in tables.
So this is my two cents of contribution, follow this link and read the instruction: http://www.danantonielli.com/adobe-app-scaling-on-high-dpi-displays-fix/

This is not the ideal solution but it should make it usable again. I hope in the future this problem will be corrected directly in QGIS.
My configuration is: laptop DELL Precision M3800 64bit; OS Win 8.1; monitor res 3200x1800; QGIS 2.6.1
