5.2.X Font Rendering issues

15 posts in this topic

Since the update to Chromium 61 in 5.2.0.900 the font rendering has been broken. The image shows the difference between v5.2.X and v5.1.7.2000 in alternating order. Notably the "Ul" in Ultra but its all over the place, 1 pixel shifts messing it up. I thought it was just a beta bug with the new core before but it still exists.

This is a normal design

I really hope you're just looking at the image wrong. The top is the new version in each pair. This makes it a lot more bothersome to read and bold text is even worse off.

Letters shouldn't be getting smashed up against others without any spacing, usually at the trade of some other letters having the space doubled. It can make rn (RN) look barely different than an m, just looking at this thread in the new version it makes "image" look closer to "im age". I'm recording my D&D games through roll20 which involves a lot of text. I basically can't use the new version until this is fixed.

You need to turn off DirectWrite to see the problem. I've been checking between versions to see if anything changed since it broke and I posted this. I just checked again between a newly downloaded portable version of 5.1.7.2000 and 5.2.3.4000. It will end up looking like my image as long as DirectWrite is off.

1: Windows 10 Pro 1803, no difference from 1709. It displayed properly in 5.1.7.2000 that I'm using now, any version after that has the issue.

2: Font settings are default, never changed them.

3: AMD Radeon RX 480 with the latest drivers.

4: Unchanged.

5: Not something I would care to do but I can get any other information.

Thanks for looking into this.

Why you want to turn off this settings? I can reproduce the problem-not totally same with u- There is space of some letters. The problem will not appear if you tick this option.

I confirm. Problems with the fonts, indicated in the last post Caligula73 (increased gap between the letters), appear if the settings disable the use of DirectWrite for drawing fonts.

I have it off because the fuzzy and/or rainbow text it creates bothers my eyes and makes it irritating to read anything. I have Windows and anything else like Steam that lets me, set up the same way.

Well it's been over 3 months now since I made this thread. It would be great to know if this is being looked at for fixing or if I should be switching to a different browser after ~12 years.

It's less broken for whatever reason at a bigger font size, I never checked before, it's still there and unchanged otherwise. I've been checking each version, this is at 2 different page zoom levels. I'm not using any kind of zoom or larger DPI normally.
