Yellowish font on increased font size

Yellowish font on increased font size

Postby balta2ar on Mon Sep 26, 2011 12:47 pm

Hi.

When I push Ctrl-+ and font gets larger, they also obtain slight yellow spots and marks all over the letters. It might depend on the monitor but consider these screenshots anyway:

I tried all Xft.rgba options, all hintings and lcd filters in my ~/.Xdefaults, but the problem remains. What is weird is that changes to ~/.Xdefaults affect other programs, e.g. emacs but do not affect Sublime Text 2.

I'm using ArchLinux, Sublime Text 2 (build 2111).

Looks like an antialiasing issue to me. Try playing with font_options setting in File Settings.

Code: Select all
// Valid options are "bold", "italic", "no_antialias", "gray_antialias",
// and "subpixel_antialias".
"font_options": [],

no_antialias removes yellow marks but it also makes font look terrible and angular. gray_antialias and subpixel_antialias did not fix the issue.
