Since at least Version 12.5, if a DW control had the Autosize Height property enabled, ligatures (for some fonts like for example Calibri) were turned off, while if Autosize Height is disabled, ligatures were turned on. See example:

Since we had some issues with ligatures in the past, we had to change many datawindows to Autosize Height enabled so we didn't have any ligatures. But having everything set to Autosize Height doesn't come without issues either.

Is there any other option to disable ligatures? Or could one be added to the Font Tab in the Control Properties?

Utilizar la opción "Justify" en lugar de la opción "Autosize Height" podria ser la solución que buscas.

Algunas fuentes permiten diseños y ligaduras mas elaborados sin embargo de acuerdo al tipo de fuente podria ser

que presenten resultados de visualizacion mas pobres cuando se escalan.

Hi Alfredo

While "Justify" isn't without side effects either, it's good to have another option at our disposal for when Autosize Height isn't applicable!

Thank you for your input!
