Font Smoothing Options
Font smoothing improves the legibility of the text on the screen when you use magnification. Options include:
- None radio button
Choose “None” to turn off Font Smoothing.
- Standard radio button
Choose "Standard" for basic font smoothing. Use this option if you are experiencing performance issues using True Fonts.
- True Fonts radio button.
Choose "True Fonts" for perfect clarity at all magnification sizes. You may wish to experiment with the True Font Settings if you are using a magnification size of 3x or lower or you are using an LCD monitor.
You can switch between "None", "Standard" and "True Fonts" by using a SuperNova hot key.

True Fonts Settings
- Standard radio button.
Using "Standard" renders text in a non- antialiased mode. This is the default and fastest method, especially when using a magnification size of 4x or greater.
- Antialiased radio button.
This setting renders the text and smooth's the text edges. If you experience jagged effects using True Fonts at a low magnification size then you should select this option.
