Text is not displaying correctly on some confluence pages

Really just a small issue, but text displays as follows on scroll down when viewing confluence page:


If text is selected or I scroll up, then it returns to normal.

I haven't encountered this issue on any other Atlassian sites.

Let me know what other details might be useful to help identify the issue.

You've got boxes around the text, which tells us they are inside a macro - could you tell us which one?  Code blocks?  (simple) Panels? 

They're the default code block macros.

Ok, that tells me your systems are picking a really bad font for the code macro.

This sort of display happens when

  • Someone has set up css in Confluence that selects a bad font when renedering text in the way the code macro tries to
  • You have a theme that has css that selects a bad font for the code macro
  • Your machine is missing a font that the browser is trying to use to render it, and it's dropped through to the next one in the family or system, which happens to be a bit rubbish for this

Could you test this with a different browser, and with another machine (or rather, just check whether other people get the same problem on their machines)

Good day!

We have the same problem in Confluence 7.4.0 for the Google Chrome 89 browser. This problem is not reproduced in Firefox and IE browsers.

Fonts checked, all installed, CSS themes not configured.

During testing, I found out that the property is responsible for this behavior: overflow: hidden; if you disable it, everything works correctly.



The problem is massive, I would like to solve it.

Found a workaround to add a parameter: .pdl .panelContent {overflow: visible;} in Space Stylesheet


Thanks for the suggestions! We've moved to the cloud and we're no longer experiencing this issue, so I'm unable to confirm this solution.
