[REDMINE ISSUE 47] RDP Connection: Enable Font Smoothing...

Postby TingelTangelBob » Sun Apr 18, 2010 11:15 pm

Since Windows 2003 (with a hotfix installed), Font Smoothing (ClearType) can be used over RemoteDesktop connections.

But that feature needs to be activated on the connection. mRemote does not currently allow this. The same is true for Desktop Composition (Aero) over RDP, which is available since Windows Vista.

It would be great to have these features in mRemote.

Bump. That would be nice.

According to: http://blogs.msdn.com/rds/archive/2006/09/08/747023.aspx:

You can set the new experience options with the IMsRdpClientAdvancedSettings::put_PerformanceFlags, method. The flags for desktop composition and font smoothing are:

TS_PERF_ENABLE_FONT_SMOOTHING 0x00000080

and

TS_PERF_ENABLE_DESKTOP_COMPOSITION 0x00000100

That shouldn't be too hard to add. I'll add it to my list.

I would like to bring this point to your attention again. Please add font smooting support with an option, or enable it by default for all connections.

Thank you

For the issue request regarding other versions on RDP and adding more controls over options, I added a note about this feature specifically.
