Jagged Font Rendering in Catia V5

Jagged Font Rendering in Catia V5

When working in the drafting workbench, both Type 1 and True Type fonts are rendered poorly to the screen. I am pretty sure it is a question of anti-aliasing. No settings that I have tweaked have resulted in a smooth rendering of fonts to the screen.

Catia's display:

In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
