Antialias problem with new version.

Postby Artie » Wed Jul 14, 2010 2:25 pm

Actually, I believe I've had this problem since 4.c. Anyway, look at the following text: (This text is magnified. It was a 12-point font.)


Look how the non-antialiased version actually has more color "shadowing" around it then the antialiased version. The older version would give pure black and white text with the non-antialias version. (That is, "antialias" unchecked in the text box.)

This makes it very difficult to line up new text over old, and any text operations. Any thoughts on what might be causing this? This is a new HP with Windows 7.

This is an issue with the way newer versions of Windows display text. It affects older version of NeoPaint as well and isn't something new to v4.7c. In order to draw non-antialaised text without any shading we will need to redesign NeoPaint's text tool which we plan to do in a future update.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
