A forum for technical support discussion related to Fogbugz.
With a recent update (fogbugz? Windows Update? I don't know) I have the following changes:
1. The default fixed-width font now looks sucky at 10pts.
(It seems to be Courier non-TT, gets better with ClearType, but that makes other things look bad, ClearTypeTuner is no help.)
2. The font for FogBugz forms has changed to something that looks like Comic Sans in disguise. This affects the FogBugz intranet installation (Fields: Comment, Due, Estimate, custom fields, but not the title or the dropdown fields)
When entering an capital a-umlaut the letter and everything typed after it becomes invisible. When inserting an capital a-umlaut into existing text, only the letter itself becomes invisible.
Other umlauts work normally: äöüßÖÜ.
Can't observe this in other forms, that's why I am posting here. HALP!
I try to put one between the arrows:
--> Ä <--
sorry for the delay. Here's the things you asked:
Behavior is persistent after IISRESET and after full reboot of the server.
Search filed is NOT affected.
New Case Title is NOT affected
New Case description IS affected.
New Case Due date and time ARE affected
WIKI is not affected at all
I've made some screenshots:
WIKI - New Post: http://cherea.de/img/fbae/wiki_ok.png
New CASE: http://cherea.de/img/fbae/newcase_funnyfont.png
I've typed the same text into the second line of the comment field, only using capital-ä instead of AE.
Also, a screenshot of creating this post, same funny font:
OS is XP Pro Multilingual, set to US English.
Any other information you need?
Might be something about page encoding and the fonts installed, any fix appreciated.
Also, would you please see if the behavior persists with Firefox?

>> "One of the engineers tells me that if a glyph fails in font rendering, it can make the rest of the line invisible"
That seems to be the cause: the text is still there, I can select, edit and copy it. Also, some edits make part of the line visible again, and if I delete the capital-ä, the entire line becomes visible again.
Same behavior in Firefox, but it's also the same (unusual) font.
Maybe the font installed on my system is faulty, but I couldn't figure out which font is being used. Other machines here use some Courier (non-TT) like font, and don't show any problem.
Here are the fonts in order of what is chosen:
fontSerif = "'Cambria',Georgia,'Times New Roman',Times,serif"
fontSans = "Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif"
fontTT = "Monaco,'Courier New',Courier,monospace"
From what you are saying, it's likely that you have a problem with one of the fontTT fonts on your machine.
