Blurry subpixel font redering

Answered

 

As you can see, compared to VS code, IntelliJ renders the font a little blurry. Especially the edge of the text is blurred. (Tested on Windows 10)

It is not a serious issue but it would be better if IntelliJ's font rendering engine is improved.

Check https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-212281.

You can try lcd.contrast.value registry option.

I've set the option to 250, and still the edge of the text is sticking out with blur.

I think it is not rendered clearly as VScode.

Does it happen with both JetBrains Runtime 8 and 11 versions?

I'm using IntelliJ + JBR11 and CLion(JBR8). The issue occurs on both sides. This option literally changes the contrast only.

Exactly the same rendering is impossible until https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/JBR-11 is implemented.

Do you mean CLion? What about IntelliJ IDEA with JBR11? It has same issue.

Any product based on IntelliJ IDEA platform is affected.
