Metrics Options Display Issue

Post by ClintGoss » Tue Apr 16, 2019 9:55 am

Kind of a niggly, but mildly annoying ... My Metrics Options window looks like this:

I deal with it by clicking the topmost checkbox, which then gives me this, which is an OK workaround:

FontCreator Professional Edition 11.5.0.2430, Win 7 x64, Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960.

This has been an annoying issue for a while, however, I don’t recall how long.

This is how it looks on Windows 10.

Thanks for that! I kind of figured that the issue is rare (or just me) ... but I wanted to mention it in any case.

Could be my graphics card, could be Win 7 (soon to be orphaned in Jan '20), could be gremlins!

It is an issue which has been there for a long time which affect Windows Classic Theme, but I thought we fixed all of them.

I suspect you have this issue with more dialogs, like Grid Options.

It's the theme! Didn't think of that ...

Yes, Grid Options is similarly crippled. I can't change themes at the moment on my system to absolutely confirm this, but I'm sure you've got the right take on this issue ...

Thanks for the support!
