Hello, I use the same font in all applications/terminals without any issue but in Atom it gets rendered very blurry and a bit wider. I have searched the GitHub issues and the forums but until now the only solution that worked for me was to start Atom with the
--disable-direct-write parameter. From what I heard this won’t be available in the next versions (I think it has already been removed in the beta) and so I would like to find some other workaround to render my font properly before that happens.
I’m using Atom 1.11.2 on Windows 10 and my font is
ProFontWindows, here is a screenshot comparing normal vs
Any input would be appreciated, thanks!
Edit: I just tried to see how the font renders in Google Chrome and it is better, does this mean that I should be able to get the same results in Atom?
Edit2: There is some kind of inconsistency with the font size, I had to decrease it by one point in Atom when using the
--disable-direct-write option to get a better result. The text rendering is still bad compared to GDI, but the line number got significantly better, I edited the line number in the following screenshot from
data so it can be compared to the code font. If you zoom in it is still far from prefect but at least more readable:
Any ideas of why it does look more bold-like in the code?
Recap: (look only at the numbers, the rest is photoshop)
