METAR Text Offset Overlapping at Larger Sizes

Customer Reports:

Hi Ryan, I have a question/suggestion. I’ve been playing with the METAR placefiles, especially the font size. I’ve noticed sometimes the last number of the temperature and the first number of the SLP seem to overlap, making them hard to read (see attachment) when the font is above 16-18. I was wondering if it was possible to insert a space or two before the SLP so that it’s moved over and more readable at a glance.



The plan is to stagger the built-in offsets that are already in place. Currently these offsets handle the smaller text sizes well, however it seems as if the larger text sizes intefere, especially given a lengthy SLP (unit-based).
