Menu Item Rendering Problem on Ubuntu 18.04

bug

(andi) #1

Hi,

thanks for your work!
Just a minor bug I encounter on my Ubuntu 18.04.

There seems to be an issue with the font rendering for the menu entries:
Menu Bar Artifacts

There are small artifacts e.g. when you look at the “Move to Notebook” entry. Not sure what causes that but happens throughout all menus (also right-click context menu), don’t encounter it in vscode or other electron apps.

Maybe it is solved when upgrading to electron@2.x as they have improved the gtk integration: https://electronjs.org/releases#2.0.0

(Or it is an issue caused by the set font?)

Cheers,

Hi Andi,

Thank you for the report.
I confirmed that and It seems to be an Electron’s problem.
Currently upgrading it to @2.0.0 has a problem where theme doesn’t work.
So it would take for a while but I’ll work on it!

v3.25.0 is based on Electron@3 which supports GTK3, so the problem should be fixed.
Thanks for the report!
