    Words and Fonts are not sharp.


    After I did the upgrade, the font of my system are just horrible. They are not as sharp as before, the best way to describe it, is that they look like they where printed with a misaligned print head, and I can't seem to find a way to fix it. Does anyone else have this problem?

    :)

    Restore display setting to locked default

    Thank you for your answer. Actually I found a different solution: run a
    compatibility test
    for the apps that lost sharpness with a bigger font size. That completely solved the problem with Zotero (bigger font now, and sharp); regarding Unity, the only apparent solution is to revert to the preset settings (so I can have
    Unity with either a bigger font size but text a bit out of focus, or smaller fonts but perfectly sharp test – at least I have the option).

    Yeah, me as well. Have a read at this and welcome to the club.

    PS: when you are referring to such issues it is almost compulsory to post the complete specifications of your monitors, dot pitch included. IF you are having the problem I am having though, do NOT expect a solution.

    it is hideous with a pixel pitch above .25 like my .27 Samsung 24". But some people like it. LOL
    Decent enough at .18 on my notebook
