My text layer has a white border regardless of the layer's BorderWidth and BorderColor values.



If I turn off AntiAlias for the text layer, the white border disappears.



Am attaching a sample project to reproduce the error. Is there some setting I can use to remove the white border?

Thanks in advance.

Hi

Yes, this is a limitation of the way alpha is handled in layers. Unfortunately there is not an easy solution to this.

Hi,
I had the same problem.
My tip, to use inner shine with text color.
That reduces the effect quite well.
Example:
ImageEnView1.CurrentLayer.InnerGlow.Enabled: = True;
ImageEnView1.CurrentLayer.InnerGlow.Radius: = 1;
ImageEnView1.CurrentLayer.InnerGlow.ShadowColor: = TColor2TRGB (your Textcolor);
ImageEnView1.Update ();

Hi Klaus

That actually works very well. I'll look at adding this kind of smoothing to the next release.

Hi Klaus,

I think your solution works to remove the lines around the text? My issue is there is a white border around the text layer that shouldn't be there. I can either turn off anti-aliasing, or don't use a fill color, to remove that border.

Sorry Ray, I misunderstood. I have fixed that now. You can email me for an update.

Hi Klaus

In the next release you achieve the same with loEdgeSmoothing of ImageEnView1.LayerOptions (it will be enabled by default).
