Font weight

Answered

I use IDEA and Android Studio on a daily basis and both editors on both IDEs use the same font settings, Menlo, 12pt. However, Android Studio renders lighter fonts and I find them easier on my eyes (see below). Note that the whole UI is affected and both IDEs seem to use the same font, not just the editors.

Is it possible to configure IDEA to look like Android Studio?

Font appearance on Mac depends on Java version used, see https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/articles/206544879 .

See also this issue for the settings that can help.

Changing Appearance & Behaviour > Appearance > Antialiasing from Subpixel to Greyscale makes the font look thinner, as I wanted.

Thank you!
