[Bug] ClipString clips Shadow InLineSetting

Post by Jeff »

Image

Code: Select all

[ClipStringBug]
Meter=String
Text=#CURRENTSECTION#
X=7
Y=7
W=250
FontSize=20
FontColor=FFFFFF
AntiAlias=1

InlineSetting=Shadow | 0 | 0 | 3.5 | 0,0,0,255
ClipString=1
This is like the 4th InLineSetting Shadow bug I have seen, first one was tame, second one is just casual, third one is still an unfixed unresolved mystery and then there's this one, I am starting to see why even though InLineSettings effects can be applied to any meter, Strings are still used as the testbed for it

For anyone blind (me) and can't see what is being showcased (me), here's a difference between the two states in the image: Image

Now the good news.
I lied, there isn't any good news...

Sorry for the delay! This has been fixed for the next beta. Thanks for reporting.

What happened is when the text is rendered, the clipping took place before the shadow was applied and basically restricted where the shadow was drawn. Now the shadow is applied first, then the clipping is applied.
