Default Font type in actipro ribbon

Ribbon for WPF Forum

When I add a label to the actipro ribbonbar and compair it with the Microsoft Office ribbonbar, the font in the actipro ribbon looks more blur to me. It is also a different font, the lowercase letter e for example is visual complete different and reads much better in office ribbon bars.

Qs: Does actipro use a different font than office?
: How can I get the office font in the ribbon (style change?) ?

Hi Arthur,

We use the same font as Office ('Segoe UI') and if I run our Ribbon in a WPF .NET 4 app that has TextOptions.TextFormattingMode="Display" set, the fonts render identically to Office.

Prior to .NET 4 and that setting, small text rendering is somewhat aliased in WPF. That's a well-known issue for WPF and is something Microsoft fixed with .NET 4.

That option did the trick.
The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 2 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
