What's up with the text appearance in Snagit 4?

I'm sure there is a more concise way to describe this.  I think I've seen this mentioned before but I couldn't find it, I apologize.

When I create a text box, the font in the text box while it is active looks different from when I deselect the box.  It's frustrating. 

Because of (https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/can-i-automatically-remove-autsaved-thumbnails-from-...), I do have both Snagit 3 & 4 on my computer.  This is not a problem with Snagit 3.

For reference, the font here is Tahoma, 24 pt.  I used the same font and size when I tested this on Snagit 3. 

Is this a bug, a feature or am I just lucky like this?

Sorry about the confusion. The text at the bottom appears to have a text outline on it. During typing, we don't render the outlines because it can cause typing to lag. To remove the outline, simply set line width to 0 in the tool properties.
