  • Tahoe Skin - Title in window is blurred and clinched

    Hi there,
    I've noticed that the font of the title of a window is blurred
    The font-size of the window is 14 px, also the font size of the headerspan of the timeline in the background is 14px.
    But the title of the window is very bad to read.
    The window-title font seems to be helvetica-neue-bold, helvetica, and the font of the timeline is calibri.

    Version: SmartClient_v111p_2017-07-30_Pro
    Browser: All tested browsers
    * Firefox 54.0.1 (32-Bit),
    * Chrome Version 59.0.3071.115 (Offizieller Build) (64-Bit),
    * Chrome Version 60.0.3112.78 (Offizieller Build) (64-Bit),
    * IE 11.0.9600.18738
    Skin: Tahoe
    Density: Medium
    Plattform: Windows 7 Pro with latest patches
    We don't have any windows or browser-zoom enabled

    Firefox:

    Chrome:

    IE 11:

    This is the problem magnified, I Hope you will see that the first "s" and the first "o" are clinched and that the title is hard to read.


    Code for reproduction
    Code:
    Canvas.resizeControls(4);
    Canvas.resizeFonts(2);
    isc.Timeline.create({
        "width": "400",
        "height": "100%",
        "startDate": new Date(2017, 6, 31),
        "endDate": new Date(2017, 7, 2, 23, 59, 59),
        "headerLevels":
        [{
                "unit": "week"
            }, {
                "unit": "day"
            }
        ],
        "weekPrefix": "PersonTaskNestedView",
        "labelColumnWidth": 50,
        "showControlsBar": false,
    
    });
    isc.Window.create({
        "ID": "window_38",
        "left": "100",
        "top": "100",
        "width": "300",
        "autoDraw": true,
        "title": "PersonTaskNestedView"
    });

    Hi there,
    Is there any intermediate result searching for the fix for this issue?
    We are now also getting many reports from our customers about the "blurred" headlines.

    Maybe a replacement of helvetica-neue-bold with the font corbel would do the job?

    Best regards

      Knowing that this is not only a browser issue, but might be also an OS-related issue, I think this font-shouldn't be a default font.
      It also renders so bad if i'm opening up the released font:


      There seems a lot of issues with the usage of this font. Most of the time the workaround is used to locally replace/remove the Helvetica font. But we cannot distribute this workaround to all our customers.

      So maybe there is another font that can be used instead of the helvetica neue bold.
      I know, we could do this by our own, but I think this problem has to be solved for all customers of smartclient. Especially in business-environment Windows 7 + Any Browser (because its reproducable with Chrome, Firefox and IE) is a very common choice.

      Best regards

        Hi there,
        I would like to add a suggestion for a replacement-font.
        Using font Helvetica-Neue-Bold:
        Click image for larger version  Name:	2017-08-22 13_51_37-test.png Views:	1 Size:	11.5 KB ID:	248646

        Using font Open Sans (as webfont downloadable at github)
        Click image for larger version  Name:	2017-08-22 13_52_57-test.png Views:	1 Size:	13.4 KB ID:	248647

        I think this would be a good replacement-font. Its rendered properly and it's readable with clear lines (how it should be).
        Is there any progress with the decision on using helvetica-neue-bold? Or any other solution to this? Or any response from Isomorphic ?

        Best regards

            Thanks for the changes.
            I'm confirming the font-change to calibri for window-titles. We do still see the font bug in the section-header.

            Best regards

              Same font is seen in he color-selection window, but this will not be used on a daily base.
