Editor rendering disaster Follow
What does it mean when the editor starts rendering text as shown in the attached screen shot?
This seems to happen when I examine an Android layout in the designer.

Could you attach idea.log ("Help - Show Log in... ") after reproducing the issue?

You image just came across as gibberish. I think you are best to post
the images somewhere and post an URL.
If you can't find somewhere to post, email it to me.

Gibberish is a good description of how the editor is rendering. The image is accurate.
Here it is.
Please try to disable third-party plugin (Auto-Format Text (2.0) ).
I did that, but the problem did not go away.
Could you check it with Oracle JDK 7 or 8: https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/entries/23455956-Selecting-the-JDK-version-the-IDE-will-run-under ?
Running IDEA in JDK 7 I do not observe the problem.
did you tried changing font type? I think I once experienced same issue with some monospace / bitmap type..
Same here, I saw this once before and it was due to a font that Java didn't like. Just changing the font didn't work though, I had to also restart IntelliJ after changing the font.
Good suggestion. Changing the editor font from SourceCodePro to Menlo resolved the problem.
