    Thank you for filing this bug. We have been able to verify that the 3D controls in the Composition panel toolbar won’t draw correctly on Windows in two cases:
    1. Changing the display scaling of the monitor while AE is active.
    2. Moving AE (or possibly just the Comp panel) to a monitor with a different display scaling factor.

    The result in both cases is that when AE calculates where the 3D controls should be drawn, it’s not factoring the change in display scale and it’s drawing them in the wrong place. If the display scale increased, there are fewer pixels to work with so the 3D controls either get cut off or disappear. If the display scale decreased, the 3D controls are all there but they get an extra margin on the right.

    The workaround is to restart AE, so that the 3D controls read the display scale correctly…

    When I open AE, it starts up automatically in my 4K monitor (which is scaled to 150%). My other monitor (which is my main monitor) is a 1080 100% scaled monitor. When AE starts up, the buttons are missing even though it's always in the 4k monitor. So it seems to scale itself to the other monitor, rather than the monitor its opening in.
