affinity interface on non-retina displays and Mojave

Recommended Posts

This is a screenshot of Affinity on a non-retina Macbook Air 2017.

You can see the font rendering is so bad it is unreadable in places. Look for the word "steps" under "Fip Horizontal" and "Flip Vertical"


I know that MacOS Mojave changed font rendering. I have observed this issue with and without this commonly suggested remedy:

defaults write -g CGFontRenderingFontSmoothingDisabled -bool FALSE


Any suggestions?

If it only affects the Affinity software here and is a persistent problem for you when working with the software, I would do so in order the dev team takes a look after this.

☛ Affinity Designer 1.7.1 ◆ Affinity Photo 1.7.1 ◆ OSX El Capitan
