ClearType with JDK1.6

Hi.

How can I turn on ClearType antialiasing when IntelliJ runs with JDK 1.6?

Thanks,
Amnon

Isn't it on automatically when Windows uses ClearType? At least for our
software it is, but it is look-and-feel dependent.

set IDEA's L&F to Windows and turn on CT in windows screen properties

That only seems to partially work. Menu's, panels, line numbers and a number of dialogs don't display anti-aliased text either, e.g. the settings dialog. It would be nice if this was consistent.

Also enable "Use antialiased font in editor" in Settings > Appearance to get lcd anti-aliasing in the editor. Note that currently the main menu and popup menus do not seem to be anti-aliased at all, and the tool window buttons seem to be using plain anti-aliasing instead of lcd anti-aliasing.

Thanks all.

I see the same things you described now.

JetBrains, could this be fixed before 6.0.3?

At least the editor is fine now (took Sun long enough to support that...)

Hello Simon,

This will be consistent in Selena. Full support for ClearType under JDK 1.6
is not our goal for the 6.0.x bugfix updates.
