Monospaced wrong rendering when Windows scalling is turned on. Follow
I have Full HD on 15'' laptop. So my system scaling is turned on to 125%
And I have a wrong rendering of Monospaced
If I turn normal scaling to 100% it looks OK for me
It seems like font scales only in horizontal
That appears only in Editor
How can we fix it with scaling turned on?
I run Windows 10 last updates, IntelliJ 2018.2.5 release version on bundled JDK
UPD: If I run IntelliJ in compatibility mode with override DPI option to System I have normal fonts, but with a dramatic loss of sharpness

Sounds like https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-185238
Does it help if you set sun.java2d.uiScale.enabled=false property in vmoptions?
No, nothing new the font is still weird.
I restarted IntelliJ after applying VM arguments you suggested
Please check if the problem reproduces at 2018.3:
Still the same
How I can help you to get it fixed?
I have the same problem with a 27" 2k monitor. System scaling is 125%.
The property sun.java2d.uiScale.enabled=false doesn't help.
Sorry being annoying but this bug disturbs me every time I code.
Any news or thoughts on that?
Could you please run "Change display settings" from the system config and see if there's a warning like "Some apps won't respond to scaling changes until you sign out". And if it is, please sign out/in. Then please try running IDEA with -Dsun.java2d.uiScale.enabled=true and then 'false'. Please also attach idea.log in both the cases. Does it make any difference?
Also please check https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-185238#focus=streamItem-27-3240808-0-0
There were no warning messages, but I've signed out/in just in case.
I can't attach logs. I can't attach anything except images.
I've tried both true/false, and nothing changes at all.
I've checked the link, and it is correct, fonts are same (as far as I can tell).
But, what does it means for me? It is still doesn't looks like it without (or system) scaling.
Scaling set to 125%:
Scaling set to 100%:
Sorry for the delay, could you please try 2019.1 EAP, some scaling issues were fixed there:
I have exactly the same font issue on windows 10 and external fullHD monitor with 125% scaling. None of the posted solutions helped. I can attach screenshots, but they looks same to topicstarter ones.
Will any fix be available soon? I have this bug in latest PHPStorm, Intellij IDEA, Android Studio.
Please provide idea.log
Also, does using -Dsun.java2d.uiScale.enabled=false VM option change the font rendering for you?
I have created issue https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-212486 (including idea.log).

2020.1 isue is still present
Please see https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/articles/360007994999 for the scaling options you can use that may help to workaround the problem.
