Is there a way to fix the text overlap?

EDIT: this is NOT caused by this filter specifically, this can happen to any filter and even without the filter. Just restart your game. Right now it's an engine related bug. There's absolutely no way for a filter to edit font type, the label itself or the kerning in the filter, (you can only change size, color, font, background and show/hide). Just restart your game, for now it's the only fix

I reported this bug to GGG and they said:
"The font on the item filter is a known issue, this does not have anything to do with the particular filter that you are using."
So I think it'll be fixed sooner or later. It affects <5% players (judging by the number of PM's :p, though I might be wrong) and I suspect, it's somewhat related to the "new sound engine" or the preloading... Restarting the PC/game fixes it for most players, even if it's a temp. fix.

I Lowered the text size to 41 and it was sorted on my side. it looks like it's something to do with the resolution of the game. Looks like there might be an attempt to wrap the text on multiple lines on space, however the game can't do multi line. I don't mind commiting this change if you want?

I don't think that's the solution. It happens on some systems and it's a very rare bug. I think for now, I'll just stop trying to create workarounds for this issue, considering how rare it is and that a game restart fixes it.

Thank you for your feedback/offer though.

Last weekend I got this bug, after restart game, the bug was gone. I think this is a workaround at the moment.

Yeah restarting the game is one way to fix it. Another way is to create a copy (physical file copy) of the filter and switch to the copy.

Also, I suspect it has something to do with certain applications running in the background. Also I've been recently able to reproduce this bug intentionally and I think I start understanding why GGG could not do it. I'll post more, once I'll confirm my findings.

I have encountered with the problem, and for me it seems like at certain height resolution ranges some labels are not visible. Messed around with changing height and width. And width does not seem to affect this. Took some screenshots as well: http://imgur.com/a/EUvlP

@NeverSinkDev I'm getting an error parsing line 2706 ingame for Maelström staff. I think it's the letter "ö".

@sanjsanj I don't get that error at all and I have the staff set to highlight for chancing purposes. Not sure what version you are using. But line 2706 for my version is a blank line under the "[2002] Hybrid flasks (normal)" section with no "Maelström staff" anywhere NEAR that line. So maybe it's time for you to update to a new version?

I've noticed that claws don't display correctly to item level (filter 6.1 SOFT). It's important for chaos recipe.

@axelsword is that because the claw Is higher than 75, and counts as regal recipe
