System.util.retarget() with JVM Arguments

I’m currently running Ignition 8.1.17 and using the JVM argument “-Dsun.java2d.uiScale=2.0” within Vision Client Launcher to ensure that font scaling works appropriately with Windows scaling set to 250% (as opposed to a multiple of 100).

I’m trying to implement system.util.retarget() to switch to a different gateway with a similar project, but I when I do, it resets to the default scaling. Is there a way to retarget while using the same JVM arguments?
