How to remove font color cast?

11 Dec 2019, 07:59

Is there a way to remove a font color cast/artifacts? As seen in the following example, some letters have green and red borders. Is there a setting to remove this?

Code: Select all

gui, font, s20, Segoe UI
gui, add, text,, THIS IS A TEST
gui, show

As far as I can tell that is just the normal effect of anti-aliasing

If you take this tool and run it over any text you find you will see the same thing. (as far as I have observed anyway).

***Edit***

Or better yet, Try this one. (it's amazing how little black there actually is in black text).

You can turn off anti-aliasing/font smoothing at the Windows level if you'd like. It will cause text to look very jagged, but you can do it. Depending on your system, there may be easier ways to do it. Here is one article on how to do it: https://www.thewindowsclub.com/disable-font-smoothing-windows

Boiler thanks for the article link, it (particularly the comments after it) were very enlightening. The comments also had a air of familiarity to them if you know what I mean ;) :lol: :lol: :lol:

I didn't make it down to the comments before, but there's a whole lot more going on down there than I expected! Let's hope they stay away from our forum. :D

I'm not sure if this will help, but in the article Boiler posted the word "ClearType" came up over and over again and it just so happens that someone posted a script this very morning with the title "Toggle ClearType with a hotkey".

It might be worth taking a look at.
