Blurred Fonts

Recommended Posts

I'm new to using the Mac, having bought the Mac Mini Core Duo a couple of weeks back.

 

Can anyone explain why all of the on screen fonts look blurred?

 

To all intents and purposes it looks as though some form of Anti-Aliasing is in effect and I'm curious as to whether this is normal or something I should be trying to resolve.

what kind of moniter are you using.

 

is it all text that is blurred or just some?

You can control the font smoothing using Preferences > Appearance

Find the drop-down menu near the bottom of the screen.

 

When I first switched I thought the Mac fonts looked blurry, but soon I realized the Windows fonts were more jagged than ideal, and the Mac method does look better.

 

Of course it is a matter of taste.

I'm using a ProLite E435S LCD.

 

It does appear to be all text but it's more noticable when you're close up. I first thought that I'd just been on the computer too long and I was getting slight eye strain.
