FileMaker Pro 15 and High-DPI Screen Problems in Windows

I just upgraded to FileMaker Pro 15 and am doing some development work on a Microsoft Surface Book which has a high-DPI (dots-per-inch) screen and am having some difficulties seeing items on the screen.

 

The text and windows are generally fine, but the Tools on the toolbars are minuscule and very difficult to decipher.  In fact, if it weren't for the popups, I don't think it would be possible to determine which tool is which by the icons themselves.  They are simply too small.

 

Additionally, the text in pop up menus is also very small.  For example, the text in the pop up is formatted at 12 pts, but when you click on the pop up to use it, the menu items appear to be in about 6 pt text.  Readable, but not easily so.

 

Anything that can address these issues would be highly appreciated!
