Illegible Font in Dialogs

Illegible Font in Dialogs

This happens in many places throughout your extensions. The attached image is representative of the problem. It is taken from the Site Import dialog. The image attachment was not resized by the forum attachment manager, it shows how the dialog looks on my PC (Win XP SP2, Dreamweaver CS3 build 3481).

Not all text in your extensions are illegible like this, but where the problem exists, the dialogs are very difficult to work with.

Hi Mike,

Is it, perhaps, a preference setting in your Dreamweaver? I am not sure how the different font settings affect the dialogue boxes but there may be something there. It almost looks like your font has been turned into a small pixel font with no anti-aliasing in place.

I haven't experienced the problem, so I apologize that I cannot help more... but take a look in the preferences and see if that changes anything.

Best regards,

All of my font settings under Dreamweaver seem reasonable. This problem is only with your extensions.

Has no one else ever complained about something similar?

A font is not set within the extensions, the font is set by the System and / or Dreamweaver.

Have you customized any of the System Display Settings, Perhaps changed any Fonts in the System Appearance control panel?

maybe try setting the Color Scheme in the appearance settings to Windows Standard or windows classic.

Is the display DPI set to Normal (96 DPI)? or has this been changed?
