Bug Reports / Interface bugs on 4K

This is all on the latest version of MusicBee.

Panel configuration (bottom right corner with text overlapping over buttons)

Checkbox lists are broken almost everywhere. Only a small portion of checkbox is actually clickable. When you untick it and tick again it's clipped.

Form legends are sometimes overlapping over the form itself

Clicking outside of template editor brings MusicBee to background

Some might argue that the sides of the triangle look better under 'Bicubic'.
And I am curious what would happen to a circle.

More importantly, for non-vector regular colour images, Nearest-neighbour usually turns out very ugly.

Yes, some people might prefer Bicubic mainly because they're used to it, since all browsers use it for scaling. Maybe an option would help here, since some skins are not updated as often as we would like them to be. But I don't agree here that color bitmap images look bad with N-N scaling. You get a lot of smoothening and even lose some details because pixels overlap and it all becomes a mess, especially with images that consist of regular shapes. With N-N you perceive an image as it would be displayed on a lower resolution monitor, without any extra filters on it. I think it a matter of a fair representation here, not just a visual preference.

With MusicBee supporting interface scaling I think it's important for old\not updated themes to play nicely on scaling values higher than 100%. Having nearest-neighbor algorithm applied to styles' graphics would help this a lot. I've made a very simple comparison of nearest-neighbor and bicubic algorithms (MusicBee right now has the one that's on the right):

The biggest problem on high DPI is blurriness and the most basic algorithm gets rid of it completely. Hope this makes some sense.

Thanks for the great theme! Is it possible you share graphics source files for the theme (assuming they are vector)? Or should I wait for an updated version with SVG? I like the theme a lot, but its graphics need to be updated for high DPIs. This is how it looks on 4K resolution with 200% scaling:

Thanks for the great skin! Any chance we'll see an updated version with High DPI support?
