Track Times clipped - Version 4.40

Postby jpsa » Mon Dec 10, 2012 10:55 am

Using the font "Monotype Corsiva" (this font has been distributed with many versions of Microsoft Office), track times are slightly clipped. See attached image, particularly tracks 7 and 8.

I suspect this may be because (as is permitted) the inked area of some characters overhangs the character box -- see, for example, the documentation of the Microsoft function GetCharABCWidths().

Is it possible either for AudioLabel to do the text size calculation a bit more carefully, or, failing that, to allow a user specified extra margin around text?

Hi John,

This issue can happen with some italic fonts when using AudioLabel version 4.40. The Microsoft Office version of the 'Monotype Corsiva' font only comes in italic and bold-italic.

A simple workaround is to add a space after the number.

AudioLabel version 5.00 fixes this issue by properly measuring the extra overhang used by italic fonts.

The Registered version of AudioLabel 5.00 is available for download or upgrade using the same download link that was emailed to you after purchase.

The Trial version of AudioLabel 5.00 is available to everyone and can be found on the main Download page on the AudioLabel website.

Thank you for the prompt response, and I can confirm that the problem seems to be fixed in 5.00 (Beta 2). :)
