unwanted lines / grid displayed on or above app window

Recommended Posts

While experimenting with my first Overwolf App I am experiencing some unusual visuals which I am unable to resolve.


I have created a new window for my app using these manifest properties.

    "resizable": true,
    "transparent": false,

These give me the nice header with minimize/maximize/close and footer with transparency slider thingy. I love it. Good times. However...


My experiment has a dark background and some light colored lines are displayed above the page and its elements. These lines are spaced at 256px both horizontally and vertically creating a grid pattern at large window sizes.


These lines are also visible when I use the app "Calculator" ( installed from the appstore ) when it is sized greater than 256 pixels in either direction.


Are these lines intentional?

Are they seen by others?

Is there an obvious thing I am missing to make them go away? 


Thanking you in advance for any time and thought you are able to give in helping me find a solution to this problem.

The lines themselves were displayed at any resolution I tried 2560x1440, 1920x1080 or 1280x768....


B-b-but I had the slider set way over to make text readable by blind people. like 150%-175%


Setting the text size to 100% did in fact make the lines go away. 


I have some really nice screen that was never designed for old people to look at... ~frowns~


Thanks for the tip.


Please consider testing future versions with this setting .... Make text 125% / 150%


It would really help those of us who are visually challenged.


I appreciate your time, consideration and speedy response.

We're aware of that issue, just didn't manage to get to it yet.

Thanks for bringing it to our attention!

Any update on this?


I'm using DSR 1440p and 125%DPI and this happens, i could just change back to 100% but then everything would be too small to read.


Thank you. :)
