Hipchat text corruption


Since installing the latest version of macOS 10.12.3 I have experienced a couple of issues with Hipchat.

Namely, the room names will be corrupted when the divider between the room name and the chat room is smaller than the room name length. I've attached a couple of screenshots to show.

Also, creating text with two "g's" will remove the text from screen. Again, screenshot to show issue attached.

I've tried deleting HipChat and re-installing the latest as well as the customary restarts although the issue remains. Can anyone suggest a fix please?

This seems like a very bizarre issue - lots of us here at Atlassian are running on macOS 10.12.3 but haven't seen the problem you described. Are you possibly using some kind of 3rd party software that modifies text at the system level? I can't imagine what would trigger the weirdness in that screenshot or why "g"s would randomly disappear.

If you continue to have problems, you might want to ping the support folks at https://support.atlassian.com/hipchat/ and they might be able to help diagnose your specific situation more in depth.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for the response. Yes, people in my office are not experiencing these problems either. The only 3rd party software installed related to text would be adobe fonts. I can't see why that would cause the problem but will try removing anyway. Failing this I'll contact support.

Thanks again.

What should I think about when migrating HipChat to Slack?

...from the beginning. We have built up a lot of content in HipChat, with it being a core tool in our distributed company model. While it is true that we didn’t need to move to Slack immediately, we felt it...
