Default Theme for 4K monitor (increased font size)?

Is there a theme which works well on a 4K monitor by default (ie. increased font size)?

I've tried to increase the font size myself, but I always seem to wind up with a jumble of elements with weird overlaps.

Thanks.

Go look in the Themes sub-forum and you will find quite a FEW 200% "ADAPTATIONS" that are said to work pretty well, plus White Tie (official Cockos theme developer) has done an example.

I'm using 42" 4K monitor.
For me 200% sized skins results in way too big GUI elements. it seems 150% might be perfect for me.
You can see on screenshot below, that 200% skin (Comala) leaves not too much space for plugins. Of course, it can be changed at expense of changing sizes other GUI areas. Also there is limited number of visible tracks in mixed as well as in tracks area. This is not what I expect from 4K monitor.

That's why I stick to a skin "Default 5 Dark Extended", with font sizes modified by me to required sizes.

Unfortunately this skin offers no as many layout options as others, lets say Comala5.

At the end everyone will find something which matches his needs/workflow.

BTW: In Reaper preferences I have High Dpi mode set to 'Aware'.

Sorry - I had assumed since this is newbie land that you were a real newbie!

I dont have anything that does more than 1920x1200 so not able to actually see what the modified themes & White Tie`s new WIP default 5 theme look like "real size".
One reason I havent moved to a high dpi monitor yet.
I have noticed that even some of the DAW screens supposedly retina enabled tend to have very small fonts on really big monitors. A buddy has two 2500-odd 32" monitors and he runs Logic Pro, which looks fine apart from the issue with fonts.

There seem to be lots of themes for 200%, but none for 150%.

Am I missing them?
