Issue #7156 resolved

Funky Administration Layout

I'm primarily using Windows 8 64-bit with Chrome (26.0.1410.64 m) and I get the misaligned screen like the one attached. The problem doesn't manifest in Firefox or IE.

This has actually been a problem for months... I just never remembered to take the time to log it.

    Hi Corey,

    I'm not able to reproduce this on Windows 8 with the same version of Chrome. Can you confirm if you get the rendering issue with a vanilla user profile in Chrome? (I.e., no special settings, extensions, etc.)

    Also, are you by chance using a high DPI display or have a non standard DPI/PPI set in Windows?

    It's a 1920x1080 laptop screen... I don't think it's anything out of the ordinary, and nothing is non-standard as far as the display settings in Windows. However; on my desktop with lower resolution, the issue does not appear in Chrome. Doesn't seem like higher resolution should cause this though (I could see how lower res could).

    I originally reported the problem with some plugins (mostly dev tools), but even a vanilla install has the same issue.

    Hi Corey,

    I think I've figured out what's going on here: would you happen to have your browser zoom out/decreased by any chance? I think that's what's triggering the problem.

  4. Corey Butler reporter

    There isn't any zooming in Chrome, but I was able to recreate the error in other browsers by zooming out... so I'm still not sure what's going on with Chrome.

    Ah ha - it looks like your assessment is correct regarding zooming. The zoom level wasn't clearly distinguishable until I took a closer look, but now that you've pointed it out, it became clear. Turns out a desktop app/background git service is apparently messing with the Chrome settings - definitely a bug. Strange behavior for an app... not even sure how it managed to do that, but that's an issue I'll take up with the author.

    Thanks for your help... I'd consider this closed.
