Slice frequency display partially covered by text in upper right of slice flag

I've notice that the frequency displayed on the slice flag is partially covered by the text in the upper right corner of the slice flag.  The text is "SLICE TX" and the slice letter (A or B or C and etc).

Is this normal, or something to do with my video setting on the PC?  If I hide the slice flag the frequency is move up and to the left of the slice letter.  If that is just the way it works, I can live with it.

And by the way it is the 2.2.8 version of SmartSDR.

If you do not have the correct font that will happen. I dont remember the name of it.

I'll get a picture uploaded, but it will have to be tomorrow. And I'm just using the default Windows font. Have never changed the font type of size. But I will double check all of that.

Luckily, Flex has the font download available in the Support > Downloads section of the main Flexradio website.

http://www.flexradio.com/downloads/napoliserial-xlight-regular-zip/

I found it by entering "Font" into the downloads page Search box.

You might also check that Font Scaling is set to 100% in Windows > Settings > Display > Scale and Layout. 

Windows controls the sizing of some of the Fonts in SmartSDR.

Use 100% scaling, or experiment and  find another larger scaling setting that you can stand to use.

I'm pretty sure this has come up before, and it's definitely a Windows font issue.  No such problems here on either of my computers.

Well, I apologize for the noise, it is definitely a local issue.  This was a relatively new PC that had never had SmartSDR loaded before, so it was the first time I had viewed SmartSDR on this PC.  On my laptop that has had several different versions of SmartSDR, I don't have this issue.  Thanks for the feedback guys and again sorry about the extra chatter.

Kudos to Jay NO5J. Installing the Napoli Serial Xlight font cured the display issue, and actually made the Flex display crisper all around. Thanks!
