Flickering font fuzziness when using a monitor with a scaling factor

I’ve been getting some strange font rendering only on Kinopio and only when using a particular monitor. The scaling factor on mac also has to be set to a non-integer multiple of the default scaling one. (i.e. the default times 2 is crisp but between 1x and 2x is not.)

I’ve been using Firefox. I’ll comment back with how chrome looks when I get back to the monitor.

what monitor and resolution scaling factor are you using (I’m guessing you set up your resolution through the normal macos display preference?)

Sorry just now got back to the monitor:

I’m using a Dell U2723QE with resolution set to “Looks like 2560 x 1440”.

It does seem better today, though. I’ll let you know if I see it again!

It’s happening again :confused: Here’s the display settings:

Thanks for reporting.

I’ve noticed this on my built-in MacBook Pro screen at times, but it was the whole screen—not specific to Kinopio.

I just watched your video again. I agree, weird! It’s very interesting that it shows up in a recording. I don’t know how the rendering stack works, but this tells us something about where the problem is/isn’t :wink:
