The SFDC In-page editor has always had distortion for me, and I'm just wondering if it's just a lousy browser plugin they're using or if someone has found a good browser / operating system combination that stops the obnoxious distortion.

Obviously Salesforce doesn't have much interest in fixing it: as it's been this way on multiple operating systems and browsers I've used since I've used Salesforce.

However, my frustration with their other developer tools has lead me to use it occasionally and it's always the same:SFDC In-page developer mode editor is always distorted. OSX+Chrome

  • What browswer/os combinations have you tried? – Adrian Larson Jul 24 '13 at 19:12
  • OSX+Chrome, OSX+Firefox, OSX+Safari, Pretty much everything on Windows 7, it's always there. – jordan.baucke Jul 24 '13 at 19:18
  • Could you use the Chrome dev tools to inspect the underlying DOM elements? I suspect something odd is occurring at that level. E.g. There are actually 2 paragraphs there and one is being positioned behind the other. – Daniel Ballinger Jul 24 '13 at 19:28

Can you try to zoom the screen a bit ctrl + OR click on the A to increase the font size , this should probably fix the text ghosting, surprising but that's what it is :( enter image description here

    Yeah it looks like it was browser zoom. What a lousy plugin. – jordan.baucke Jul 24 '13 at 20:43
  • The plugin is designed to work at 100% zoom, no more and no less. It's definitely frustrating, I agree. The Developer Tools window doesn't seem to suffer from this, though, although it will wickedly eat up your API calls. – sfdcfox Jul 24 '13 at 21:31
