the little handles on lines and other shapes are impossibly small on a high resolution display (3840x2160) --VERY hard to click on them or drag them. Zoom does not help. Any suggestions?

Currently the size of the markers is hard coded in svdhdl.cxx. Please write an enhancement request to get larger sized markers. You should attach a (cropped) screenshot of an object with defined size, e.g. a line of 2mm width, and its handle to illustrate the problem.

I'm still having this problem with current version of LibreOffice Draw on a Dell XPS with HiDPI screen. Any updates on this?

Are you using display scaling? I tried changing from 100% to 150% scaling just now, and it made everything bigger, but a bit fuzzy. Since you have a UHD monitor, see if there is a 200% option on your system. That might solve the problem and also look okay.

It's not an ideal solution if you don't want the rest of your programs to be scaled, but it's something you can do quickly and easily. Go to Settings -> System -> Display.

I set mine to 300% and it still didn't change the size of the handles. Any other ideas?
