Blurred fonts in Windows Live Mail and IE9


M

Mortimer

I've just got a new Windows 7 Home Premium laptop and I notice that the
compose and preview windows in Windows Live Mail (Version 2011 (Build
15.4.3538.0513)) have blurred text, although the "furniture" text (list of
folders, text on icons etc) is sharp.

Also, IE9 has the same blurred text whereas Firefox's display of the same
page has sharp text. OK, so FF's text is a bit jagged, but that is
preferable to the out-of-focus ClearType abomination in IE, especially in
the smaller body text as opposed to the larger headline text.

I've turned off ClearType in cttune (or Control Panel | Personalisation |
Display | Adjust ClearType text). In Control Panel | Performance Information
| Adjust Visual Effects I've unticked Smooth Edges of Screen Fonts. These
affected some of the more gross font-smoothing in other parts of Windows,
but nothing has affected WLM and IE. I'm not bothered about IE because I
always use Firefox, but the blurred text in WLM's emails is getting very
tiring on the eyes.

I've googled and found several instances of people who have experienced
blurred text in WLM's "furniture" (eg folder names) but no mention of the
body of the email being blurred. I found reference to a Microsoft fix for
some fonts, but when I tried to install it, Windows said I already had that
update installed.

Does anyone have any suggestions about how to fix the problem - and "use a
different mail program" isn't very helpful, before anyone suggests that :)

Some of your fonts, appear to me to be bitmap replacements of some sort.

Using a directory listing (about 45MB of text) I happen to have lying around,
this is what is on my laptop in the way of fonts. Some of these would be
bitmaps. There are a total of 619 lines here. (I moved the listing to the
end, to make it easier to snip.)

On sevenforums, I can see mention of a difference between the font
control panel, and the fonts folder, where all that seem to be available,
is eleven fonts. One of the participants here, did a "reg query" and found
a large number of registry entries, so I presume this is a report of a
working config. There are about 386 lines in the reg query, and they
all seem to be TrueType.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts
...386 lines of font entries.

My fonts folder has about 316 .ttf files in it, so it's more or less in
the same ballpark.

There is a remote possibility, that the registry is being queried, instead
of the program doing a "dir" on the Fonts folder.

but nothing has affected WLM and IE. I'm not bothered about IE because I
always use Firefox, but the blurred text in WLM's emails is getting very
tiring on the eyes. []
Does anyone have any suggestions about how to fix the problem - and "use a
different mail program" isn't very helpful, before anyone suggests that
:)
So you'd accept "use a different browser" (-:! Sorry, can't help with
WLM (ClearType was going to be my suggestion, but you've already been
there).

If your version of WLM is version 15, there _are_ other reasons not to
use it: apparently it doesn't quote properly (at least in news, don't
know about email).

It is tempting for me to say that IE (and possibly WLM) are Microsoft
deciding what's best for you, but that's just my prejudices.

(I presume the screen resolution is set to the native resolution of the
display; I'd hope a new laptop would be. That wouldn't make some text
sharp and some not, though, unless grossly different font sizes, which
they don't seem to be from your screenshots.)

Sadly this didn't make any difference. It also prevented WLM starting again
after I closed it to force a reopen (the help text with the option said
"takes effect when IE [and WLM?] is restarted" - the cursor changed to an
hour-glass but the window never appeared. I had to reboot to make it work
with the "Use software rendering" setting, and the preview window then had
exactly the same problem.

Oh, and in answer to JP Gilliver, yes I am using the screen in native
resolution - but a good suggestion!

I'm not bothered about the effect on IE, as I prefer Firefox, but I use WLM.
Actually I'd much rather go back to using Windows Mail (or Outlook Express)
from my previous Vista (or XP) PCs, but I've drawn a blank at managing to
get WM (copied from the Vista PC, using instructions on the web) to run. The
ribbon interface of V 2011 (Build 15) may offer more buttons on the toolbar
than V 2009 (Build 14) which I have on my older Windows 7 desktop PC,
without needing to add them manually, but it has the usual problem with
button bar interfaces (as in Word 2007 etc) that options which were all
visible on the same tool bar in older programs now require you to keep
flipping between menus - the usual "where do I find that missing option?"
problem :)

I might investigate Thunderbird and Outlook to see how they compare with
WLM.

Outlook isn't free, it's part of Office. It also makes it difficult not
to top-post, as it puts your signature above the quoted text.
(Outlook-Quotefix - like OE-Quotefix - will fix it, but not if it's part
of Office 2010 [and I think 2007]; it's OK on 2003, which does run under
7.) Thunderbird is free so far.
