0009733: Text jumps up and down in Truetype
With Truetupe and graphics enabled open job management tab [j-m], add new task and choose any, i.e Collect Sand. Interface starts jumping up and down with a delay of 1 sec.

The resulting prompt should look like this:

Do the steps in description.

You also might want to press F12 couple times to see that the same window with truetype off looks just fine.
No tags attached.

This might have to do with how the justification behaves when an empty string is sent in where you are typing the number.

If you press a number key so that a number appears for the quantity, does it look right? If so, I might have fixed it for the next version.

Yes, as soon as i start typing a number blinking stops immediately

Seems like this has been forgotten to be marked as fixed.

I just verified that I could reproduce it in 43.01. Testing in 43.04 it works again so it was fixed at least since 43.04.
