Anyone having this helpless text rending issue??

Recommended Posts

I've been having this issue for at least a year... and tried all possible troubleshoots, including formatting of computer itself, but nothing seems to work. 

As you can see from screenshots, text becomes extremely fuzzy/blurry within Evernote app, every few seconds (esp when I type something in the note). It's almost as if the company tries to calibrate re-focus on the texts (and fails, obviously). This is not ClearType issue (it's not just blurry, but more like impossible to read), nor DPI scaling (I've been using 100%, although the resolution is bit unorthodox at 5120x1440, at super ultrawide monitor). 

Below is what I've tried so far:

  • The issue started to show initially from Windows 10 environment. I re-installed Evernote multiple times but nothing worked. Recently I formatted the computer and moved Windows 11 - but SAME issue happens. 
  • Again, this isn't DPI issue as I'm using 100% scaling. Yet, I tried 'compatibility' setting for the applications (e.g., Windows 7, Windows 8 etc), as well as DPI override setting... Nothing works. 
  • I'm using NVIDIA 2080ti, and have used at least 5-10 different GPU drivers over the past year. Nothing works...

I'm in a desperate help here.. please anyone kindly help

There were threads about similar problems in the forum, and I tried to search them. Here some I found, maybe you can draw some ideas from it. For the v10 clients I don’t remember a similar problem described here - but your screen setup is far from usual, so who knows.

You can try to turn off hardware acceleration:

1) In config.json (it is located in C:\Users\user_name\AppData\Roaming\Evernote) set isHardwareAccelerationDisabled to true in qa section, it should be looks like:

"qa": {
    "isHardwareAccelerationDisabled": true,

 After changing this you need to restart the application.

Please do it and tell if it helped you.
