Task/Description pane - Blurred font

Dear community,

My topic follows this unanswered one: https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360001170559-Task-Description-Windows-blurred-font?input_string=Task%2FDescription%20pane

I checked the learner/tutor version of PyCharm and I found out that I had an issue about the font used in the 'task/description' pane (blurred, pixelised). How can it be solved? When I go in tutor mode and create my own tasks, the font is always blurry even if I change it.

Hi! Sorry for the late answer!

A blurred font is a problem of a library we are using to render HTML. We're sorry that you experiencing these problems. 

Posting here an update from ticket EDU-1927:

However, there is IDEA version with bundled Java 11 where we suspect the bug to be fixed.

If you have time, it would really help us if you could try IDEA with version 11 and tell us if it helped with the problem.

The fastest way to test it is to get IJ EDU version 19.1 EAP which comes with Java 11 and EduTools plugin already installed.

For your information, you also can get IJ Ultimate with Java 11 from JB site https://www.jetbrains.com/idea/download/


If It doesn't help. You can try this workaround:

1. Go to Help -> Find action

2. Type "Switch Task Description Panel"

3. Choose Swing

4. Reopen project.
