My bitmap checkpoint is failing when running via Remote Desktop
Question ID: 108123

I have a test I created on a test machine that has a few bitmap checkpoints. They work fine when I run them in the lab. When I try and run the tests using Remote Desktop, the bitmap checkpoints fail. They seem to be showing differences in the text part of the checkpoint.

Bitmap checkpoints on objects containing text may fail if you create them using a Remote Desktop Connection and then run them locally, or if you create them locally and then run the checkpoint steps using a Remote Desktop Connection. In the run results, the image displayed when you click View Difference in the bitmap checkpoint results shows some text shapes.

Workaround: Enable the **Font smoothing** option in the Remote Desktop Connection application.
