Zend Studio 5.5 – Antialiasing the font (tested on Ubuntu 7.04

Hi! Today I am very happy to announce that I am now running Ubuntu 7.04!

Now, no long preludes, since this post is about “How the <fluffy bunny> do I get those antialiased fonts to word in Zend Studio?!”. That was the question for me about 5 minutes ago. Well, I really thought that Zend was perfect – usually, if they have this checkbox – it works without tweaking. Now here’s the disappointment part – that Tools -> Preferences -> Desktop -> Use Antialised Fonts didn’t really work. I asked my best friend (his name’s Google) -oh, whyyyy?… Google was silent… he didn’t know. Fortunately, Google remembered that Zend has a forum! Yay! Searched the forum and found the answer.

Here goes:

… in <installdir>/bin, edit ZDE.lax adding the following line at the end

lax.nl.java.option.additional=-Dswing.aatext=true

restart ZDE and you should have antialiased fonts… ” (c) pkoebbe

That worked like magic. No problems at all! So, I hope that this helps someone and that my friend Google will soon cache this post.

PS The original post on Zend forums is here.
