Fonts in User Interface (UI) are too pixelated

Recommended Posts

Finally we got it what we've been waiting for.. Thank you Affinity. 

On the first start I found some visually issues. Like the UI font's are too pixelated in windows 10. I've used both AP and AD on mac, but downloaded this Publisher on Windows as trial. 

please check the screenshot I attached, the left is Photoshop and on the right Publisher.

I didn't check any performance or functional thing. this was the first thing I found apparently

Text doesn't look like that on my pc. You're sure you didn't turn off anything font related in the windows settings. Or driver settings?

I am using windows 10 with a GPu Nvidia 870 I don’t think there is anything related to fonts settings in the control panel or anywhere.  if this could be the case then why Adobe is showing the fonts  very smooth  but not the affinity. is there any option that could we can change the application level fonts. 

 By the way which font  affinity is using for user interface , maybe my system is missing that specific font so that’s why this pixelation  is appearing ? 

 This is so then this shouldn’t be installed by the application by itself ?

In your Windows Display settings, there should be a Scale setting if some kind, with values like 100% or 125% or 150%, etc. What do you have yours set to?

look at another image.. 

rendering of fonts is fine, like all fonts in fonts list is smooth, because that is loading "actual installed" fonts..., similarly the text written on document "Affinity Publisher" is smooth too..

but the font used in UserInterface is blasted..  (please see this image as 100% view)

Affinity Publisher is a WPF application and follows the normal text drawing for such applications according to the type of display that they are on. As I understand it WPF will use ClearType unless the framework determines that the user has disabled it. Have you disabled ClearType option in your display settings?
