Screen and Fonts getting messed up
« on: August 06, 2020, 02:32:08 am »
I have a dual screen monitor setup - 27inch 3840x2160 and 25inch 2560x1440.

OS: Windows
I am using Fira Code Retina font.
If I open SE on 27inch monitor and move it to 25inch monitor, I see that font spacing gets all messed up.
If I open SE on the 25inch monitor and move it to 27inch monitor, I see some characters are placed on top of each other making it unreadable.
If I open SE on the 25inch monitor and don't move it, something in the font spacing does not look correct.

I don't see this happening on v24.2SE.

I'm going to try to reproduce this tomorrow. In the meantime, uninstall beta 1 and install beta 2. There is a font fix in beta 2 but I don't think it will fix this.

I can reproduce this problem with one monitor by changing the scaling. Simply switching between 100% and 150%.

Figured this out. We made a minor change to the .manifest file that is linked in. Looked pretty harmless but it breaks font scaling on Windows.

Fixed for beta 3
