[r211] Font quality bug

  • Problem Description

    Not a 100% sure this is a bug or just some settings issues, however as I haven't changed any I lean towards there being something wrong, but might be related to Chrome/NW.js The issue is with the quality of fonts.

    In case this is related to Chrome, are there any way to fix it so it at least works for NW.js?

    The left side is from the C2 editor and the right when running in NW.js examine the quality there is a huge difference between it. Like all smoothing have been removed from runtime.

    Attach a Capx

  • Seems that this is a problem in Chrome. For those having similar problem it can be solved by turning on "Clear type font" in the display properties.

    But would be nice if C2 would be able to overwrite this settings if possible, if not then this should of course not be seen as a bug.

  • Can't reproduce, appears fine in both NW.js and Chrome here.

    Since you indicate that you had Cleartype disabled, I assume this problem is because you basically turned off high-quality text rendering system-wide, so closing.
