Hi everybody,

I've seen there is a annoying issue with fonts in eclipse (the editor, not menus or the general IDE). They are pretty blurry, particularly fonts like Fira Code, Jetbrains Mono and even Source Code Pro (the only font that looks perfect is Consolas).

Well, the fonts are displayed too blurry. I tested with other IDEs like Intellij and the problem is not as annoying as in Eclipse.

For example, Fira Code, looks in eclipse:

And the same font looks in IntelliJ:

https://bn1301files.storage.live.com/y4m9q9i0uTOWXL9kV9PbcrBoICWBjzB4GWJLpJznwWSSjTBiDQpVSkwRcISBOKpUkOTQAzfwSjXwozj5KT-aJUgcAP6ODiJ6bhVAYyPtI0grOrp-OTpkMz-lFumk6pKHlWqEzTvDMQaUsABP5uRP_aK8I2gZyEfjCLcVJeFHSb-KVT6rqNhiwL5ueFDTj9FtP3S?width=545&height=150&cropmode=none

As you can see, in Eclipse some letters are too blurry, especially the "e" letter... And the same happens with other fonts...

Is there a way to setting up the anti aliasing for the editor in eclipse?
