How Do I?
Font anti Alias

Some fonts in DeltaWaker's text editors are not smooth on macOS. Why?

Occasionally, you may come across cases where some fonts in DeltaWaker's text editors (Cocoa-only) do not appear smooth on macOS i.e. they are not anti-aliased. DeltaWalker usually ensures that the fonts it uses are anti-aliased however those settings might get clobbered.

It's important to know that:

  • Monospaced fonts like Monaco are excluded from the anti-aliasing threshold.
  • Cocoa applications by default do not anti-alias the Monaco font.
  • Anti-aliasing of fixed-width fonts is controlled via the AppleSmoothFixedFontsSizeThreshold setting and not AppleAntiAliasingThreshold.

Executing the following command in Terminal (Application > Utilities) should take care of the issue:

defaults write com.deltopia.deltawalker AppleSmoothFixedFontsSizeThreshold 9
