Grip menu disappears in AutoCAD on 4K monitor when using individual display scaling at 150%


When you use AutoCAD 2019 together with multiple monitors and one of the monitors is a 4K monitor, you experience the following issues: 

  • If the 4K monitor is set to 125% display scaling: Blurry text appears in applications or in the Windows interface
  • If the 4K monitor is set to 150% (recommended) display scaling: Grip menu vanishes when the mouse hover over a grip to view and access the multifunctional grip menu

150% which is the recommended setting is ideal but it does not work. These issues occur in AutoCAD 2019 version. 

The following screencast captured the issue:
