|Summary||0000072: blurry tool icons|
|Description||At least on the Mac platform, all the tool icons in there unselected/selected state are very hard to see clearly due to how blurry they are. Sharping the images or better contrast would help.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
I have not found a way to create sharp or pixel precise graphics with cairos quartz surface on Mac OS X. Using a different rendering engine is not an option and I have tried all settings I could find but there might be a way to fix this.
can't you special case the code to see its running under 10.8 and use hardwired icons that are clear to read? I be glad to make the icons. just send me the files.
Otherwise I am deleting birdfont. shame. Is 1.9 the same??
||Yes, some kind of platform specific code should do the trick but I need to rewrite a large piece of code and render graphics in a different way.|
Drawing was done differently in 1.9, but icons should be a bit blurry in 1.9 as well.
Do icons look blurrier on 10.8 than on my 10.6 installation (see the screenshot)?
Does text look better or worse compared to icons in the tool box?
I have created a new beta version. The icons looks sharper on my system. Does it look good on Yosemite?
||I have updated the icon and text rendering. All icons has been moved to an icon font (http://birdfont.org/gitphp-glip/index.php?p=birdfont.git&a=blob&hb=HEAD&f=resources/icons.bf). Icons look sharp on my system now. Please add a comment if the icons and text still are blurry on your machine.|
