    Please always include log files with your Bug Report!
    Check out our Wiki: Bug Reports and Log Files


    Describe the Problem you encounter as detailed as possible! "It does not work" won't help the team to understand the problem.

    Fonts in the Full- and Mini-EPG are displayed incorrect. Also in the news-view.

    Describe as detailed as possible the steps that are required to encounter the issue. This info is critical for the team to understand the problem.
    Steps to Reproduce:

    It happens sometimes, I don't know a way to reproduce it.
    I see this Bug for about one year now, but only about once in a month. First i thougt the cause would be an outdated driver of my graphics card, but after an upgrade the problem still exists.
    After restarting MediaPortal the text is displayed correctly.
    I also had this on BlueVision Skin on MePo 2.2.x

    The graphics card is a NVIDIA Geforce GT 1030 with driver version 456.71 (via Windows Update) on Windows 10 2004 x64.

    The problem is known, but not reproducable unfortunately. It happens very seldom from time to time and is gone after a restart of the client.
    It is related to font rendering with FreeType library. Updating the library did not solve this issue yet, also not the recent change to SharpFont (based on FreeType as well).
    There is a new idea by @morpheus_xx to improve this in future, but I'm not sure about concrete details.

    So maybe I've just overseen the bug in Jira.

    But the bug isn't a big problem as it only happens very seldom and you can still use MediaPortal, so I think i can live with it ;)
