UI Rendering Problem - Windows Aero Snap

AG

In Chrome, the UI becomes unreadable if I use Windows' "aero snap" to make the window half size (horizontally). Using a pointing device to manipulate the window size avoids this problem.

This seems to only be a problem if I use the aero-snap keyboard shortcut <windows key>+left or <windows key>+right.

I am unaware if this happens in other browsers.

This is not urgent for myself. I just noticed it and thought it would be useful information for the development team.

It would be great if I could add a screenshot. I hope my description will suffice.

Hi Andrew,

So you are using this with Chrome? Only when you use the keyboard shortcut?

Feel free to send the screenshot to brendon@doist.io and david@doist.io

Regards,
Brendon.

Hi Brendon,

Thanks for taking a look at this.

Yes, this is with chrome.

It only happens while using the keyboard shortcuts. I attempted window resizing with the mouse as well as aero snap with the mouse and they both work fine.

I sent the screenshot as requested.

Thanks,
Andrew

I censored my projects so the pixelation of the projects is my doing.

Andrew,

I have been able to reproduce your issue, though not exactly as you described.

I have a project open, and the browser is windowed. I press WindowsKey+Left and it works fine. Then I try to drag the window out of the snap, normally not working at first, works second time. I then drag it to make it full screen again. Then when I drag it to make it window again, I see your issue.

So, at the very least it's related and I have now let the developers know about it.

Regards,
Brendon.

Brendon,

Yes, that sounds perfect. I believe the problem occurs only when the starting state of the window is full screen; I just tried it myself, again.

Thanks for your help!

Best,
Andrew

Hello,

I'm not certain if I'm supposed to create a new case. This problem has returned.

Again, this is low priority, but nice if it can be fixed again.

Thanks,
Andrew

Hi Andrew,

Can you maybe attach a screenshot of the problem so I can pass it along to our developers? Thanks in advance!

Sure, Clyde!

I'm attaching before and after images to show how the UI gets morphed when Aero snap is used to re-size and move a window.

I think Microsoft just calls it "snap" now. It's activated with (start key) + (arrow key left or right) or by dragging a window to the side of the screen.

Thanks,
Andrew
