  • [Foxit for Linux] Page display issue (condensed fonts)

    Please see the attached photo. The pdf display on my Ubuntu machine was recently broken -- it shows condensed fonts.

    It used to work before. However, probably due to a recent system update (and display driver update) the page display was broken. All other applications are normal though.

    pgx ,I apologize for the inconvenience.Do you use two monitors in vertical mode? If so,we suggest you try to unplug the external monitor to see if the issue would be solved?

      Thanks Lisa_lee for the reply.

      Exactly, I use two monitors: one landscape, and one portrait. I disconnected the portrait monitor and rebooted the system, and the issue was resolved now. It's a great temporary fix.

      Is this a known issue by the Foxit team -- will it be addressed in the next version?

      Thanks again for the support!

        Yes, if everything goes well, we will fix it in next release 3.0. Any update, we will inform you.
