> Hello all,
> Do any of you experience these issues or is it just me?
I just tested my CVS gnome build again and it works great.
Do have access to a win nightly build? Can you see if you see the same bugs?
> I went to update the build.zabw doc (why is this a binary file?
> instead of a simple .abw) and well, using Abi really sucked.
> I did find the zoom level effects the results some. Originally
> I used Page Width, but found 100% seemed less buggy.

> sometimes before (even several characters before), so don't even
> try to type and look at the screen to see where you are.
> - the letters, especially if you are switching between fonts
> (times vs courier), get overwritten, i.e. characters typed later
> overwrite or hide the characters before them (something like the
> picture shown in bug 5504)
> - highlighting is now a game, usually you have to start a few
> characters before the one you want to get a full word, and just
> watch the layout change (lines shrink & grow and the missing letters
> from previous point show & hide as the highlighted section changes) -

> Please let me know what your results are!
