The issue reported is fonts may not render clearly, with rendering artefacts which impede readability.
A small number of reports have been received where PDFs are not displayed correct, resulting in "choppy" text, for example:
- Windows 10
- Google Chrome / Microsoft Edge (both Chromium based)
It appears this is a bug with the computer's graphics card driver and Google Chrome's implementation of hardware acceleration when rendering 2D canvases.
In some cases, users have reported updating their graphics card driver to the latest version has resolved the issue. Alternatively upgrading to Windows 11 may resolve the issue.
- Check with your computer manufacturer to see if a graphics card driver update is available for your computer.
- Upgrade to Windows 11
