OSX – font issues

If the font in your list header looks like this:

Header Bad

when the screenshot on our website shows this:

Header Good

That’s because you do not have font smoothing turned on for your monitor.

Mac OS X automatically turns on font smoothing based on the model of your monitor, but it doesn’t always get this right. Depending on your monitor, you may have to force font smoothing to turn on. Here is how you do that:

  1. Open Terminal.app. It’s located in /Applications/Utilities
  2. Paste the following into Terminal.app and press return

    defaults -currentHost write -globalDomain AppleFontSmoothing -int 2
  3. Restart your Programs

If you want the new setting to apply to all the other apps, you should log out of Mac OS X and log back in, or restart your computer.
