Text started appearing randomly italicized/bold


I just started getting this weird behavior with Max 5.0.7: the text in my patches is randomly but consistently italicized/bold.

I cannot recall that I’ve done anything in particular to cause it.

The only solution I tried was to uninstall Max/MXP and reinstall, but it hasn’t solved it.

Perhaps someone here has a solution to suggest?

You might want to check the “Native Font Rendering” option in the Preferences.

Indeed, font rendering is not as neat, but at least it’s consistent Smile

Thank you!!

I got the same problem.
The thing is that I develop my patches under mac OSX, and then give it to someone which uses them under Windows, and with max Runtime.

Is there a way to turn on “Native Font Rendering” from within a patch (in Max and Max Runtime) ?

Preferences are not accessible in Runtime right?

nativetextrendering message to max.
Don’t know how I havent seen it last week Smile
and it works in runtime. perfect.
