After I found out that the new version of Juce ( 3.0.0 ) has a new text rendering engine I immediatly tried it on windows. I have to admit that I was not really impressed by the new results. I'm using fairly small standard fonts ( Arial, 12 ). The font rendering still looks a lot different from the native windows rendering ( compared to for example WordPad ).
On the forum -a lot- of topics are about text rendering some dating a few years back. I find it very difficult to find out which is true and which not anymore ( Jules: is it possible to have an advanced search on date, or version of juce ? )
Back to text rendering:
- What are the expected results on windows 7 ? ( can anyone show their best rendering for smaller font size in a picture ? )
- What control do I have on the quality of the rendering ( on windows ) ?
- What fonts did you ( = Jules ) use to optimize the new text rendering ?
I have to add that rendering on OSX is perfect.
