Maschine2 DPI scaling issues with VCV Rack2 VST (Windows 10)

Running Maschine2 on a 4k monitor at native resolution, 200% dpi scaling, Maschine loses high DPI scale with inconsistent scaling of certain elements (File menu, etc.) but only when VCV Rack2 VST is loaded as an instrument. VCV Rack2 itself seems to keep its dpi settings, but Maschine doesn't. However, the VST container window does having scaling issues when resizing.

Note, VCV Rack2 does not cause any issues in other host applications (Cakewalk) or when run standalone.

See attached video for example.

    I didn't know Maschine had DPI scaling?

    Scales fine typically (automatically with the OS display setting), but not when adding this plugin... :(

    Another little twist here (NI Support), When Maschine is hosted as VST itself and then you add VCV as a Maschine group plugin, the scaling issue doesn't occur. Seems to only happen in Maschine standalone. Probably because the host app (in my case, Cakewalk) is controlling the DPI and the VST UI fallows suite.

    So, there seems to be a disconnect with Maschine as a host. Is there a better place than here to file this as a bug?
