some dialog boxes, like opening maps, generating code, compiling, etc do not have spacing between characters. Unreal is run with a flag: -enablehighdpi
In 4.15 is was looking fine, so it is regression.
I was unable to reproduce your issue on our end. I have a couple of questions to help narrow down your issue.
- Are you using a custom font within the engine?
- Where are you enabling high dpi?
- no, font is standard
- “C:\Program Files\Epic Games\UE_4.16\Engine\Binaries\Win64\UE4Editor.exe” -enablehighdpi
I use 4K monitor
I checked also by launching 4.16 without -enablehighdpi - fonts are OK. But with -enablehighdpi fonts are condensed.
In 4.15 everything was good.
Does your issue occur for you on a monitor that is not 4k?
No, it is only on 4k monitor. On another monitor it looks all right, see attachment.
. The same in 4K:
4.16.0.p3 → still no spaces
I have another post for the launcher: Launcher on 4k display - Getting Started - Unreal Engine Forums
I can confirm this bug also exists in newest “Epic Games Launcher”, I just accidently added the -enablehighdpi to the launcher, and found that the launcher did support high dpi. but the fonts are rendered without correct space.
Also the exact same problem exists in UE4Editor.exe
