Does any know how, or if it is possible to stop the "tails" on some of the text being cut off when using GDI++.

Here's an example from deviantart.com

You can see the tail on the "g" is cut off. This happens in all web-browsers. It's the only reason I can't use GDI++. It annoys me too much.

Can someone tell me how to install the x64 version of GDI++?

http://code.google.com/p/ezgdi/wiki/InstallGuide

I downloaded ezgdi-dll-r28.zip but what do I do with the files inside?

There are no installer for ezgdi right now. Only a bare dll, check the file like ezgdi-dll-rXX.zip in download list Extract the zip, put easyhook64 or other easyhook dll in one of the directory in PATH, such as c:\windows or c:\windows\system32

Currently, only registry load are supported. | x64 Windows Installation howto:

* to install on x64 windows, use notepad to edit ezgdi-x64.reg, fix the path to both ezgdi-x86.dll and ezgdi-x64.dll

* if don't need to render 32 bit program, delete last 3 lines in reg file

* then import the reg file

Could anyone upload Ojalord's setup, or is that currently outdated? I'm having a problem with GDI in Windows 7.. if I use clear or light colored backgrounds the font on the desktop icons looks heavily pixalated and distorted. I don't use a specific .ini, just the default.

I've tried various fonts, pre-smoothed and not, but I always get the same result.

Any help?

That has been an issue even with Vista.

I used to have that problem but It doesn't seem to happen to me any more with the latest version: http://free.flop.jp/gdi++/src/gdi0909.zip

I do have a new problem in that I can't seem to exclude any apps. Trillian Astra and GDI++ don't seem to get along too well and adding trillian.exe (or any other app) to [DenyModule] doesn't work any more :( Maybe I'm doing something wrong though.

May someone who is using gdipp show his/her config, please? Thanks.

This is what I came up with after a little tinkering with side-by-side comparison to safari set to medium smoothing.

Of course, you may want to tinker again yourself as LCD screens being different can produce some different appearances, or so I get the impression.
