2017.2 GUI Resolution / Pixelation Issue

Answered

I'm new to the language of Python and PyCharm, so I'm not sure if PyCharm is the issue or not.  I was using an older version of PyCharm (can't recall which one) last night to build some simple GUI windows using Tkinter, and updated to the latest version of PyCharm today (2017.2).  In the old versions, the text and buttons would render nice and clear, but in 2017.2, immediately after the update, it seems text and buttons are pixelated.   Again, not sure if this is a PyCharm issue, but it only happened after the update.

Hi Jotlyons! I'm pretty sure PyCharm has nothing to do with Tkinter fonts, anyway you can check it by running your script from the terminal.

This is me running it from Terminal.  It *seems* much more clear.

Here are the two side-by-side.  The one on the left is the version I ran from Terminal, the one on the right is being ran by PyCharm.

Does anyone here know what could be causing this?  Would greatly appreciate a workaround if anyone has one.
