Text Fields ››


If your machine is configured to use Font Smoothing, and you have chosen to use the ClearType type of font smoothing, you may find that some text objects in ToolBook are properly smoothed and some are not smoothed at all.

This problem only affects what is seen within the ToolBook application. If you export your content to DHTML, the resulting DHTML will not exhibit this problem when using ClearType.
