It seems to me that Font Expert does not make use of antialiasing when displaying fonts. This results in a jagged edge to the fonts and causes some detail to be lost when previewing.

Is there a way to apply antialiasing to the FontExpert previews?

Here is a simple way to see specifically what I am talking about:
1. Open FontExpert
2. Load a worklist
3. Select a font so there are characters displayed in the Characters Table.
4. Do a print screen
5. Open photoshop or some other photo editing software.
6. Paste the print screen.
7. Zoom to 300% on the font list - note the alntialiasing.
8. Zoom to 300% on the character table and text samples - note the lack of antialiasing.

I am currently using the 2006 version.

I will be happy to send a jpg of an enlarged version to demonstrate what I am talking about.

Please send us your jpg to support [dot]

FontExpert currently doesn't have it's own anti-aliasing output for font samples, so I would recommend you to turn on the antialiasing support built in Windows. (It seems it is turned off on your computer.)

Please verify the settings here (for Windows XP):
