Unity Mode and Multiple Monitor DPI Scaling - VMWare Workstation 15.5.7 Pro

Ok, so I know there is a known issue with VMWare Workstation and monitor DPI scaling (something to do with the latest Windows 10 release). 

But is this also expected to affect Unity mode?

My experience:

Primary monitor : 27" 3840x2160 (150% scaling)

Secondary monitor : 17" 3840x2160 (200% scaling)

The primary monitor is totally fine but dragging to the secondary monitor everything is TEENY TINY and I can barely read anything. 

Example (deliberately blurred) screenshots are below.

Yeh, I realised those screenshots sucked so I created ones which weren't sensitive in Notepad so I didn't have to blur them 🙂

I have the same issue with Unity mode (16.2.0) - I have been hoping for a fix for many versions now...

Laptop screen at 200% scaling, secondary monitor at 100%.

Moving a Unity window to the laptop is unusable, defeating the point of unity mode for me (multi-monitors)

There is some solution for windows 10 (guest):

1. Ctrl+shift+U (with started vm in unity mode) 

2. Programs -> Settings -> System -> Display

3. Change the scale for each detected monitor as you want to
