Windows 10 - No text visible?

Postby englishgit » Thu Jul 02, 2015 10:02 am

I've been trying the app on Windows 10 on my backup tablet (ASUS VivoTab Smart ME something-or-other) for a while now, and I'm hitting an issue that might relate to a need for a graphics driver update (Intel don't seem to be bothering with Win10 just yet, at least not for my device).

The text on the main screen (and all menus) is invisible, so I can't see what I'm choosing. Has anyone else encountered this, and is there a solution?

I've attached a screenshot so you can see what I mean.

As a side note, I've also been using it on Windows 10 Mobile and it seems to work well there.

If anyone can help it would be much appreciated.

I happen to also be on an Asus VivoTab Smart. These are absolutely issues with WDDM 2.0/a lack of proper drivers from Intel for Windows 10. You'll probably start noticing other graphical oddities on the tablet, too, the more you use the Insider Preview. For me, for example, the backing solid color for the Action Center regularly fails to draw.

I expect Intel will put out new drivers in the next couple of weeks as the official release of Windows 10 approaches.

Which W10 build are you on? I've noticed new behavior on build 10162. The fonts are no longer cut off in places that it was previously. Also the scaling seems tighter.

I'm currently installing build 10162. Other than installing new builds when released, I'll await new graphics drivers. You're right about other oddities. The Edge browser and notification area seem to be the main culprits as well as this app. I don't know enough about graphics drivers to pin-point the exact issue and why it affects some things and not others. In the short term, switching between the standard and night themes seems to help, if anyone else encounters the same issue, but this needs to be done on each restart of the app.

I've updated to Build 10162 and the issue still exists. :(

I suppose I'll have to wait and hope that Intel release a graphics driver, and keep switching between Default and Night themes in the meantime. It's my secondary tablet rather than my day-to-day device, so it's not a big deal. I posted more out of curiosity than anything, wondering if anyone else had the same issue.

Hi, the same problem in the Windows 10 build 10240, no text, In Windows 8.1 there is no problem at all.
