But: Fuzzy pastes

Unread post by Winsteps » Tue Aug 19, 2008 1:48 am

In the picture, the original TNT 2.1.0-370 screen copy is the green box with the words "This is some text".

Select the words, copy them and then paste them into the box. - OK so far.

Slide the pasted region out of the box (above in this case).

"Do you want to resize?" - Yes.

The box is now the red box.

Result:The pasted text appears fuzzy, as in the picture.

This is normal. You are pasting one bitmap into a bitmap of a different size, which requires resizing. This always results in fuzziness, it is the nature of digital graphics.

Thanks, Tim. But then why isn't half the text fuzzy when I slide only half of it outside the box?

In the picture, the original TNT 2.1.0-370 screen copy is the green box with the words "This is text".

Select the words, copy them and then paste them into the box. - OK so far.

Slide the pasted region half-way out of the box (above in this case).

"Do you want to resize?" - Yes.

The box is now the red box.

Result:The pasted text appears correct, as in the picture.

I'm not quite sure what you're cutting and pasting here - what is the text, graphics or a text object?

Apologies for the lack of clarity, Tim.

Of course, now I can't reproduce the "fuzziness" problem when pasting outside the capture area, even though it has happened many times, and is highly reproducible when it does occur.

I know this is a VERY old topic, but I have noticed the fuzziness on TNT..

I can reproduce this as well - by editing images while viewing in more than 100%. It is a bit of an annoyance, but now that I know why it happens, I try to copy and paste between images with 100% view and zoom in after.

So, a little tip: always go back to 100% before copying between images :)

Hope this helps.
