The title is self-explanatory.

Once I upgrade to Qt 5.14, font size increases for no reason in KDE Apps (Systemsettings, Dolphin, Kwrite etc etc) and becomes a bit blurry on my screen. Anyhow, that behavior is not expected or appreciated.
When I downgrade all dev-qt libs back to 5.13, everything reverts back to normal.
Here's how it looks like: https://imgur.com/4TPWKAR

I've googled and found out that some people have issue like that, but not exactly the same: https://www.reddit.com/r/cpp/comments/e9pp79/qt_514_released/falu04x?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x
Tried to update and therefore downgrade 3 times with every latest and greatest KDE update since mid-December 2019, no luck so far.

Not sure if it's a bug or I am missing something.
Any advice is gladly appreciated.

There are issues with Qt 5.14.0 in that regard.

I just pushed dev-qt/qtgui-5.14.0-r2 containing this fix: https://gitweb.gentoo.org/repo/gentoo.git/commit/?id=2097e30779ee62d4846364fbc86a33a61798ad37

Please test.

Thanks for reply.

Just tested it and it works great. Everything looks just fine as it supposed to be.
Huge thanks for the patch.
