[Solved] {fast} text tag, how to avoid a text placement shift?

#1 Post by Ropponmatsu » Thu Dec 14, 2017 11:26 am

Hiya!

I just ran into a text placement issue when using the {fast} tag.

It is harder to see with the limited resolution, but the {fast} text switches position ever so slightly, compared to where it was in the previous window.
I assume this is an issue with automatic kerning and/or auto-fitting the text, but I haven't been able to find how to change/work around it, so I'd appreciate any advice.

Thank you in advance!
