Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

[Minor UI Glitch] Tab Label's Text

I'm not sure if it's a desired behavior but you can see the letters ('g' or 'y') are a bit masked.

System Settings:
Resolution: 3820x2160
Screen Diagonal: 15.6"
Scale: 250%
Windows 10, 1809

Is this intended by design?

Probably not intended. Might it be a side-effect of 250% scaling? Which font are you using for Tabs in foobar preferences? You could try another font perhaps.

The Default Font, the font Option for Tabs isn't even enabled. (I think the Default is Segoe UI)

Bug confirmed, thanks for reporting.

However, it's not foobar2000 that is to blame, it's the standard Windows tab control which handles the text display and truncates the bottom of your letters - verified with other instances of the tab control. Any other app using the standard tab control will get the same bug.

I'll see if there's some way to work around (short of inventing own tab control....) this but don't keep your hopes up.

I had a look at mine with Segoe UI and nothing is cut off, I can see the bottom of the 'g' correctly on a non-active tab.

As a point of comparison, my Windows display scaling is 125% and I'm on Windows 10 v1803, and Segoe UI Regular font is version 5.55. I wonder if it might be the same issue that is effecting rating stars on 1809 or at least a similar glitch that was introduced.

Note: bug verified on Windows 10 1803 with 250% text size. From the looks of it it's an old problem (classic Windows controls incompatible with large text sizes) rather than a new one.
