IDE anti alias?

Is it just me or is the IDE anti aliasing still not working? The Editor anti alias is working, and I was under the impression that something was fixed about that.

Yes, it doesn't work for me either (running on Linux).

C'mon JetBrains people, we now have two settings dialogs but no anti-aliasing! ;)

The problem is that we were using AWT hack to make anti aliasing work
in every window. This hack doesn't work since JDK 1.4.2_02.

Interesting, then why have the check box there to turn on ide anti alias, should it not be removed/disabled until you can make it work?

well, either way, people would complain ;)
j2ee settings where there for ages and j2ee integration didn't work (for the most part),
so, what does it make you feel better:
a) to file a defect that checkbox for antialiasing is missing or
b) that antialiasing doesn't work?

I am curious what this hack was. Could you tell us now that it doesn't work? To make everything in Swing antialiased, I made a L&F that subclassed Metal's component UI's and overrode the paint method. This didn't work completely (things like combo boxes were rendered without antialiasing), so I gave up.

I'm more concerned about 4.0 going out in release, and users who have not been in eap complaining that it was in 3.0 and not working in 4.0.

Personally the box is checked for me all the time, my config settings are pretty much all the same all the time. So I don't care, just an annoyance I noticed.

Also J2EE feature value is not Anti Alias feature value, people can work with Anti Alias off, and do now, however not with J2EE off.

Don't think I'm complaining, I'm not, I could care less. I would just hide it since it's not working.

Best!

Please don't remove it! Still works for me (Linux)
(rather nicely, too).

As you understand it's not possible to subclass all LAFs. IDEA's anti
aliasing works in every LAF and it requires hacking two Swing classes.

Can you tell me which classes, and how? I'm only curious.
