Text artifacts when I use the bob.jar


It looks like this

When I do not use bob- all is well!

java version

Java    openjdk version “1.8.0_212”
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (AdoptOpenJDK)(build 1.8.0_212-b03)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (AdoptOpenJDK)(build 25.212-b03, mixed mode)

bob version

1.2.158 2019-07-05 16:43:17 (3d63d05)


Can you please tell me how to solve the problem?



We never supported OpenJDK v 1.8, but Oracle’s Java 1.8.

However, it seems OpenJDK has fixed some rasterization issues, and in fact the Editor is running using OpenJDK 11. Perhaps if you try that version instead?
