mac font nitpick?

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

hey all.

this might be a bit of a weird thing to post about, but i've just noticed it, and it's a little bit distracting, and cannot figure out why it's happening.


thought somebody might know how to fix it.


i'm on mac os x leopard, with anti-aliasing turned off for fonts below 144. (virtually, off)


i'm trying to use monaco 9 font in some programs i'm using


in most of my programs, basic ones like, textedit, my irc client, even a music program i use a lot called max/msp 4, they all show monaco 9 like this:




in some other music programs i use, REAPER and max/msp 5, the kerning on the exact same font is really odd. it squishes everything and makes somethings uncomfortable to read:




does anybody have any idea why this happens, and if it's fixable?


many thanks!
