Anyone else seeing goofy display issues in the Project Browser in RC5? Fields look like they’re on top of each other or cut off in some cases. Seems to function normally otherwise. If others are experiencing it, I’ll file a report. If not, I’ll troubleshoot some more and figure out what’s going on. Didn’t see this issue with RC 4, however.
