Can we disable/reduce Editor font smoothing (R2021b)?
14 views (last 30 days)
Is there a way to disable or reduce font smoothing / antialiasing in the Matlab Editor?
I know there are somewhat related questions, restore-old-editor-in-r2021b, monospaced-font-seems-different-in-different-matlab-versions, matlab-font-2021b.
Compared to the Command Window and e.g. the Editor in R2020a, the Editor in R2021b now renders fonts differently, with an overly smoothed result that I find quite fatiguing at least on my display.
The strength of the effect differs depending on the font (top: Editor, bottom: Command Window).
(The appearance is not perfectly reproduced here due to the inherent lossy image compression on Matlab Answers.)

To disable the "font smoothing / antialiasing" in the Matlab Editor in Linux, deselect the option "Use antialiasing to smooth desktop fonts" . On Microsoft® Windows® and macOS platforms, MATLAB uses system setting for antialiasing.
