Forums » Prof-UIS Tech Support » RibbonBar: WinXP default font problems with tooltip string Collapse All

Dear ProfUIS-Team,

based on your RibbonBarMDI demo under certain conditions there appear strange characters in the tooltip. This happens with a default WinXP installation when forcing a two-lined string (simply by inserting a "\n", e.g. "Clear\nformatting") within a large control item (see screenshot below). After having installed some more fonts the problem doesn’t occur any more. Could it be that you use a different font set than one of those being installed with a default WinXP installation? Or is there a workaround for the "\n" string separator?

Thanks in advance,



Tooltip font
