Look and Feel between RM and IDEA ...

I have installed both IDEA (10.5 CE) and RubyMine 3.2.4 on Linux 10.04, 64-bit.

Both of them have Default settings. Both use IDEA 4.5 Default L&F with Andale Mono (12-point) font chosen.

Yet, there is a noticeable difference between their appearances. The documentation popups (Ctrl+Q) on IDEA are much more legible than on RM.
I hope this is just not me. Anything I should do to improve the L&F on RM?

Kedar

Hello Kedar,

Most likely they use different Look&Feel by default. You can tweak it within File | Settings | Appearance | Look and feel.

Thanks Oleg, however, I think that a restart is a must. Also, the File->Settings->Appearance sometimes gives (incorrect) impression that the current font for the appearance is X. I somehow think that there is a bug lurking somewhere. Hope it's just me.

Kedar
