Fullscreen results in glitchy clipped text

Postby j_iglar » Wed Feb 25, 2015 9:31 am

When using fullscreen, if a stack gets scaled, all text gets glitchy. The text gets kind of cut off and is impossible to read. I've tried it with my own stacks, as well as the sample stack showing off features from RunRev. (So I know it's not my own dumb fault!) (I'll try attaching screenshots showing the glitch.)

I've read a report on this in a Nabble discussion forum referencing Ubuntu 13.10. I've observed it in my class with Ubuntu 12.04 and 14.04. I don't know if it affects other Linux distros.

Using the same sample stack, the text scales properly on OSX or Windows.

Any ideas? Is this a bug in LiveCode? Something that needs setting in Ubuntu? Other? I've worked around by using fullscreenmode = "noscale" but that's not really what we want to rely on.

Thanks, maxV. I looked it up ...there's a bug report (#11712).

(Looks like nothing has been done since it was reported last January...)
