Mailboxes blurry after build 5528

Reported by Alex | October 12th, 2018 @ 07:02 PM

Good evening!

I'm using MailMate 5528 on a MacBook Pro 15" running macOS 10.14 with an external display (DELL U2713H).
Since a couple of weeks I installed all builds that were released after 5528, but anytime the mailboxes on the left side look blurry (screenshots attached).
I know these are not "official" builds, but I still wanted to ask if there are other users experiencing the same?

Thanks in advance!!!

    I don't know about other users, but I've noticed myself (on an external screen) that it does look different. Possibly part of the reason is the translucency of the mailbox list. I might make that optional at some point.

    In any case, users do seem to have problems with font smoothing on Mojave in general. Try googling font smoothing and you might find some useful advice.

    Thank you very much!!

    I tried some of the terminal font smoothing commands I found after your hint, and I can definitely say anything looks much better now system wide. Unfortunately, MailMate still got the same blurry font in mailbox panel as before. The message list and anything else looks completely normal.
    I also tried disabling translucency in the system preferences, but this results in a completely white mailbox panel.

    Anyway, still gonna use the most recent builds, maybe it's really gonna be fixed some day. :)

    The mailbox list problem was a MailMate bug. Sorry about that! It's fixed in the latest test releases.
