Page Zooming

Post by cpiper » Thu Apr 02, 2009 4:33 pm

I would like for Slimbrowser to be able to zoom pages and maintain the integrity of the fonts, ala IE8. Right now, a couple of clicks of the zoom button and the fonts seem to come apart.

I suspect that you do not have ClearType enabled. I just zoomed to the max level and fonts are still smooth and readable.

While there are several ways to enable it, I would recommend you visit the following link, and install the control:

Windows XP ClearType® tuning utility

(Ignore the "Windows XP" portion of the name, as it works fine in Vista as well.)

Thanks for the response Hans, I read this right after you posted. I already had Clear Type turned on. Anyway, I just wanted to say that Flash has done something in regards to page zooming and fonts. When I zoom pages, the fonts are much smoother, and words stay together. Words coming apart with spaces in between was one of my beefs about page zooming. However, it is working wonderfully now. Thanks Flash!
