Forest Pack 7 font display
« on: December 20, 2020, 10:52:02 AM »
I reported the same problem on RailClone,RailClone's style editor displays fonts differently,causing some fonts to appear incomplete,now Forest Pack 7 also shows different font display, which is not consistent with other fonts,Forest Pack 6 did not have this problem.

It's the same problem than RailClone: we have rewritten the Library Browser in Qt, the same toolkit used by 3DS Max in recent versions.

It seems Qt uses by default the MS Shell Dlg 2 font, is not a physical font but an alias which is replaced by other font, depending of the Windows regional.
That font should be capable to display all regional characters. But in your case, it causes the sizing issue and that different look.

We have logged the defect, and we'll check how to fix it. Probably we'll add an option in setttings, so user can change the default font and size.

I tried to change the Windows region and language, but nothing worked

I'm afraid that will not work. Probably the font substitution is hardcoded for the Windows Chinese distribution, not for the configuration.
