Nope it was right here:
I downloaded NB today. I am on Win 7, latest version all
updates etc. I have jdk707 which I downloaded with NB.
get me wrong.. I totally am loving Netbeans so far and it
seems like it's probably suitable for forming the basis of a
rich client, it's just that that client is all about ...
editing text ... doh! :) .
Ops, sorry: my bad... I've concentrated on the problem, and missed
the "win 7" above :-)
Well, have you tried to enable Clear Type and Rounded Fonts?

You have told us which OS you don't have (Apple), but have
not said what you have.
I suspect it is Linux or Solaris, right?
I had similar problems when I've not installed TrueType
fonts in X. Install TrueType fonts and also, check if you
have installed and started "xfs". Also, enable Clear Type
font rendering (or whatever similar option you need)
Now, if you are using Windows (XP or 7) goes to
Performance control panel, enable "Rounded fonts", and in
Screen configuration, enable Clear Type font rendering.
After that, you will need to restart your X or your
Windows, and run NetBeans again.

My problem is, the fonts I see in NB just can't be
right. I am confident most people would rate them as
unusable. I am not an Apple user or anything like
that.. just anything is OK with me, but this is
I include a couple of screen captures so as to spare
you my describing what I see.
I tried editing the conf file in various ways as
found online and in forums which I am sure you're
familiar with, with zero improvement.
I also included a screen shot of just plain old
Swing font rendering on the same machine same JDK ..
it's a from demo jnlp from Oracle's site. The fonts
in that demo program look A-OK by me, but I am not
fussy about fonts.
Nevertheless, this just can't be right.
I've tried the top-level things you might suggest I
tried all different fonts.I tried different sizes. I
tried different JDKs. I fiddled with conf (NetBeans
7.2\etc\netbeans.conf), with the -J-Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=lcd
(the last place I set it to but it's been everything
more or less)
Fiddling with that has a bad smell anyways; I think
NB doesn't intend for you to have to do it, the
defaults just ought to work for almost everyone,
right? I have a completely modern machine in every
way you can think of. At this point, actually I am
What I am hoping is someone familiar with this will
take one look at my screenshot and say "Oh. that's
