Short description of error
I use screen resolutions of 2560x1440 and 1920x1080, but on both of my computers, the text on the screens in Blender Cloud's texture browser folder is very small.

Event Timeline

Tested with master dab50ad71834 and the latest add-on version 1.16, the text size looks okay although there are other issues.

@Sybren A. Stüvel (sybren) do you have the same issues or any clue on what could it be?

I have the same issue. On Blender 2.90 the add-on works fine and takes UI size into account. On current master (rB06c6fb8b93a83ddd0) I get the same result as above: thumbnails are gone, font is too small, and the font in the bottom-right corner is messed up.

It looks like we're looking at multiple issues overlapped on top of each other. There are no GPU-related Python API changes mentioned in the 2.91 release notes, so I'll assume this is an issue with Blender and not with the add-on.

I'm bisecting to see which commit in Blender caused this, and now I'm somewhere in the middle: the icons are drawn, but slightly darker, and the font is too small. Some intermediate results:

The latest master (rBfc5c5f0636bf0353) shows good icons most of the time (see screenshot below), but I had one time where it had the dark icons. The text remained corrupted, though.

@Clément Foucault (fclem) do you have any idea what could cause this? The drawing code can be found in blender_cloud/texture_browser/draw.py.
