Small graphics bug in progress bar

Hello,

I would like to report a small graphics bug in the current stable version 5700, which shows random red vertical lines in the progress bar when the vector font is used (Font Consolas). The problem started appearing in version 5546 in the previous version, this problem does not occur.

Regards
Terageron

Options / Interface settings / [x] ClearType-friendly redraw

Terageron, any pixel-level artefacts are ultimately console host issues (console applications obviously work with characters, not pixels).
Please report it to https://github.com/microsoft/terminal/issues.

As John Doe suggested, ClearType-friendly redraw can sometimes help, but exactly around 5546 it was made no-op for the "new" windows console. Mostly because Microsoft boldly claimed that all the spillover pixels issues are now fixed (and it appeared so back then).
If it's still the case, we can bring that workaround back of course, but, nevertheless, please report it to them.

Thank you for the advice, but this item is turned on by default, and turning it off or on unfortunately does not solve the problem. But Options / Interface settings / [x] Use Virtual Terminal for rendering solve this problem, thank you for guiding me to the right area. :)

Thanks for the reply, I will definitely report the issue, but based on my experience, I'm afraid the fix will take years.

I do not see anything in 5546 changelog.

Perhaps in such case the option should be grayed, with more explanation in hlf.

Meh, it's easier to restore it. 5725.
