Description matthies 2008-08-21 14:33:51 UTC
Because the Advanced Options are gone in NB 6.5, it is not possible any more to turn off text anti-aliasing. Please 
bring this back.
Comment 1 Vitezslav Stejskal 2008-08-21 14:51:17 UTC
True. You can control it on the JDK level by adding -J-Dswing-aatext=<true|false> to your netbeans.conf (or on the
command line).
