Description

On my Windows7 corporate laptop AA does not work. And the diagrams look rather horrible. Especially when zooming out the diagram becomes almost unreadable.

As per popular advice I’ve added the following 2 lines to modelio.ini:

-Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=on -Dswing.aatext=true

Unfortunately this does not help. ClearType on Windows7 is enabled.

On Linux AA works just fine and the diagrams are crispy sharp (same Modelio version).

Some further observations:

  • when saved as image, the diagram has problematic AA.

  • when printed (as PDF, using PDF24), the diagram is crispy sharp. Zoom in poses no problem.
