Why i do not do much scripting in High Fidelity or use it much ?
One of the BIG problems is the QT font type and size.
After weeks i just hecked yje log window. Not sure what happend but the font quality is really terrible. Look at the l. the font or so blurry and fuzzy.
On top of this the font is still tiny and thin. Also a dark background with light font would make things more readable.
Script editor i cannot use for 2 years now because font and color problems is doing it a bit better. But the font is still thin and weird.
And the console i never used, and i see straight why. Because the font is so tiny and bad that it’s not readable at any distance.
And the last one the got worse since the improvement. Yes improvments are many times the opposite wya. The got edit field. The font is now small in HMD and smalelr on desktop. But font type is the best of all 4 windows, only few pixels to small now.
It’s really time this problem get fixt. It really makes lot’s of good tools useless. And it seems to got worse since high fidelity did go to early access.
What font type is now used in QT ?
So what is needed :
Different font type and thicker !
Differet (customizable) font size.
Dark background with a light colored font, that way other colors are much better readable to. Because this in the script editor. the green text, i cannot red. It’s a bad habbit this days the designers use a white background and very light font color. Apples fault ?
2 mousewheel clicks down, it looks less on the forumn then in notepad++ with the font size.
Anyway, soemthing need to change, because this is not workable. and i think a good start is to oick a better font type. Then make it a bit bigger. or option to make it easy bigger or smaller.
Currently high fidelity is not useable software, the log is the most important part with programming to read the errors. And i have already put a filter on the log. Because int he past it where so full with not needed messaages. Tried the other debug, but a debug window never appeared. And the script editor is still after 2 years not usable !
Or just add the DPI scaling the talked about it in the past. After fixing font types.
ADD: The log window font looks a bit different between different screens. but it’s global on both just bad.
ADD: Looking at my lazarus and playing with fonts, i get a feeling QT log window use something DejaVu Sans Light That font gives a terrible result in my memo box. Arial seems to give best result in lazarus. Also need to set the quality antialiased or cleartype. still keep a bit blurry. Lazarus not perfect compatible with windows 10 i think. possible same with soem QT fonts. Seems i have the same weird problems with lazarus as with High Fidelity QT windows. Seen the problem with some old programs soemtimes to with fonts. Now only question what or where. Something todo with cleartype or AA to.
