I have been using the TIG w/ decent success on a Windows machine w/ a DPI of 120.
I am having some problems w/ the standard Windows DPI of 96, but that is not the main point of this email.
Regardless of the font DPI, there are problems w/ the TIG when using underlined characters (especially bold) on even “simple” fonts such as Arial.
Depending on the font size, when a character is underlined, part of the character may extend in to the underline. Example:p and y The extent of a “p” or “y” in a TIG image seems to be slightly different from what is actually in Windows (specifically, in IE). This causes TIG to fail to find the text, even w/ Tollerance set to 100.
TIG scaled the height of the underline relative to the size of the font. This does not work well w/ IE hyperlinks. Unless a page specifies otherwise, IE almost always underlines a hyperlink w/ a single line, no matter of its bold or normal, H1 or H6. This causes TIG to fail to find the text, even w/ Tollerance set to 100.
#1 and #2 combined means that I cannot find a way to use TIG to find IE hyperlinks of text that is either bold or has characters that extend in to the underline.
Unfortunately the product I work on must support IE.
I could try to define a cliprect, but that would have to be discovered for each text and might be difficult to make reliable.
Would Redstone be willing to provide a new search option for the TIG search to make it work better w/ underlined fonts?
