What happened to the daily snapshots? I'm not too savvy when it comes to SVN checkout and whatnot, and even with the wiki help pages I could never download the latest trunk, at least with the snapshots it was easier.

Please test the fixes 1.8 branch and report problems.
 http://wiki.freepascal.org/Lazarus_1.8_fixes_branch
Alas I can't get an account to use the bugtracker, just getting an error when I go to the verification address in the e-mail sent to me says it's invalid and try again.

So if anyone wants to here's a pic of the bug.  Windows 8.1, 4k resolution with scaling set to 175%, the higher the scaling the worse the effect.  In the menu editor.

As for the bug in the color picker in the object inspector, well when it happens closing and reopening the inspector does not solve the problem only closing and reopening Lazarus does.  But the last time it happened it corrected itself a little while later.  Still don't have a clue as to what might be causing it.  If I can reproduce it I'll try again with the bug tracker.

What lazarus version you use ? Is it 1.8 fixes or trunk ?

Both actually.  Oh and 64 bit windows.  I'm downloading the 32bit 1.8RC1 now will double check it later, but I imagine it's the same.
