Descenders Cut Off

Postby mevans » Thu Dec 06, 2012 7:46 am

Characters that descend below the baseline in the roman alphabet (thinks like g, j, y) are cut off.

This is nothing new and is a problem with most tools on LDS.org, so I'm not sure this is the place to report it. I observe it on both Macs and Windows.

Can you give a specific example and/or screen shot? I have looked all over the beta Lesson Schedules and can't find a single example of this happening (I'm on Win7, and I tried multiple browsers).

In your earlier post on this topic (Bug: descenders being cut off on lesson names) you said it happened on Mac but not Windows. Has that changed so that it now happens on Windows?

We've seen this on the Mac in Safari and Chrome. I don't see it as much in Windows 7 with Firefox. It's logged as an issue for fixing in a future version of Lesson (reference 430).

Here are screenshots from Windows 7 browsers showing the problem. IE9 works fine.

Let me know if you want screenshots from a Mac. I probably won't be able to do that until Friday evening or the weekend.

What is the Zoom in IE9 set to? What happens if you press Ctrl-0 (Ctrl-zero)?

The Zoom was at 100% when it looked fine. If I go to 200% or above in IE I can see that the very bottom of the "g" is cut off. So it might actually be cut off at 100%, but it's small enough that I didn't notice. I zoomed in with the Magnifier to see what the pixels look like at 100%. The descender of the "g" is fully formed. If anything is cut off, it would just be smoothing pixels.

This has been fixed and will be in the next version of Lesson that is deployed.
