All the text in the body of the site is coming up pretty badly pixelated, in both Chrome, and MSIE    Win7 64bit

 

no other site that I go to shows this problem

That's weird. Shows smooth in IE9 all the way to a 400% zoom. In Chrome it looks pixilated at 100% zoom but as I zoom in. It smoothes out. I probably wouldn't have noticed since I usually run at 125% zoom Also. I'm not supposed to use Chrome at work. But I'm a bad boy. :smileywink:

chrome does look better if I zoom to 125%, but dammitall, I would much rather leave everything set to 100%

 

<<FWIW -- i scaled that screenshot up in fireworks, but the poor font display was just as evident on my screen at 100%>>

You should be able to set it to what you want. I just found it weird that it looked better after you zoom in. Not what I expected!

Yeah, I should be able to use 100%, 125%, or whatever and still see clear text.  I'm puzzled why this one site out of all that I've been to has this problem.

 

Running at home, with IE11 and current firefox, no problems at all. 

 

Opera12 on a WinXP box -- bad text again.    Interstingly -- both machines with poor text display are using nvidia graphics cards.....

The site looked terrible on my XP box using FireFox 12 and ATI V5800 .... looks fine now with FireFox 24.

I have an Nvidia Quadro. But IE9 looks fine. Chrome looks pixilated.

I'm seeing similar poor quality font display on the Adesk home page as well....

 

Chrome, Nvidia, Dell.

Other that Opera 12 (Opera18 is current) I didn't see you mention the browser versions your using?  I don't know if it's related, but I had similar display issue using FireFox version that was getting long in the tooth.

chrome at the office, and firefox at home are both current versions - updated whenever a notice comes up for FF, and chrome always updates itself to be current.

 

IE at home is 11, office is on MSIE 8

 

I left opera back at 12 when they changed rendering engines

 

 

Interestingly, the text in the RichText editor looks fine, except that descenders are cut off at the bottom (lowercase 'g' for example).  the preview tab is back to pixelation.

 

So,,, what's adesk doing differently than everyone else on the WWW?
