Hi -

Recent nighlty builds at the bottom of the skewT graph have large bolded text - text not legible at all.

cheers, HP

Hi HP,

Thanks for bringing this up. Recently we've been working on improving the font quality of layer labels (and other text) in the Main Display window. It's still a work in progress, and written up as Inquiry 2532. I added a note to the inquiry that you found this problem in the Layer Controls and alerted the programmers.

I just jumped back to a nightly from 03/01 and it does not show this font problem in the Layer Controls since this was before the font quality changes were added to McV. Would you be okay jumping back to an older nightly while this gets resolved? If so, and you don't have an installer from 03/01 or earlier, let me know and I can send you one (for Windows 64-bit).

Thanks again for reporting this. I'll keep you updated with any progress with this on our end.

Hi Bob -

Seeing that it is work in progress is fine by me. I have already gone back to an earlier version.

thanks again, HP
