I'm guessing the switch to comic sans is an April Fool's joke, but it looks like the formatting has broken since the VFB has added new features:



I don't suppose there's any way to turn it off?

Haha, I just entered the forum for the exact same reason. I thought something had gone seriously wrong with my font library (as I had that experience before, when sudenly one system font was missing) so I started activating fonts I did not use.

I hope its an april fools joke too though, but Im glad to see I'm not the only one with Comic Sans plastered in the Corona menus.

I'll check tomorrow before asking how to fix this...

Weirdly my coworker didn't have the same formatting issue and all the info was represented correctly.

All back to normal today though, and the formatting is fine.

I have an HiDPI screen, the text was fine and readable, just ugly Comic Sans:D So it wasn't a problem using it.

Don't worry, it is gone now.  Only serious features now. I recommend testing the latest v8 RC today to confirm :D.

I was just about submitting a bug report! Let's see how long the smiley will prevail.


Good Luck

Yes, Corona developement permanently eliminates important features like this one. But you have to understand that being part of Chaos Group leaves little liberty of action, permanently fearing Vlado's whip and the potential risk of being thrown into a dungeon together with you-know-who-company developers (yes, here they are!) for creating features outperforming vray. So - only serious features.


Good Luck
