Fuzzy fonts in the alignment view on OSX Mojave (10.14.x)


Thank you to everyone who wrote letters of support last year for our application to the BBSRC, we should hear the outcome in the next couple of months.

We are now applying to the Wellcome Trust to renew funding to support Jalview's use in biomedical sequence analysis, including interpretation of genomic variation and long read RNA data (e.g. Nanopore) at the protein coding level. If you would like Jalview to continue to develop and be supported then please take a few minutes to write us a support letter saying how you use Jalview in your research/teaching.

Write as a PDF including your institution's heading and send to:
support_jalview@bartongroup.org by Friday 22nd March 2019.

Thank you!

On OSX Mojave, you may notice that sequences and IDs in the Jalview alignment window are hard to read. To fix this, first:

1. Save your work and shut down Jalview

2. Open a Terminal window (use spotlight or the Launcher and type 'Terminal' to locate the Terminal App), and type:

 

  defaults write -g CGFontRenderingFontSmoothingDisabled -bool NO

3. Start Jalview again and load an alignment to check that the fonts are now legible.

Thanks to Marcin for reporting this issue and testing the workaround via issues.jalview.org/browse/JAL-3134
