Clear Type Fonts like Consolas

Post by jussij »

If you download and install the Consolas font which is part of the Microsoft Font Pack, you might be disappointed with the results, as I was at first :(

Luckily there is an easy solution ;)

Because Consolas is a Clear Type font, for it to look any good in Zeus the Windows Clear Type font smoothing option must be enabled.

To check that it is enabled, right clicking on the Desktop and in the Properties, Appearance tab click on the Effects button.

Then tick the "Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts" option and select the ClearType effect.

Cheers Jussi
