I am using PB 11.5

I am attempting to control color, bold, italic and underline at the
character level in a datawindow.

I am using a technique posted by Konstantin Goldobin in PowerTimes.

However, when I have a set of datawindow columns, each one character
wide, each with the slideleft attribute set, the result is ugly and
not what I expect. The gaps between each character are unpredictable
and irregular. Some characters overlap and others have a two or
greater character space between them.

Before I am asked, all characters are in the same "plane" in the Band.

Can anyone offer an explanation/solution?

Regards,

Larry Peters
