10.6: Re-enable LCD font smoothing for some monitors
Authored by: mjvdvlugt on Aug 31, '09 01:14:02PM

I've noticed Quicklook not smoothing my pdf's correctly anymore. Going full-screen does give me nice anti-aliasing. Unfortunately this command doesn't seem to fix this for me. How can I go back to default?

The setting won't affect applications that are already running; it only affects new applications. Since Finder and QuickLook are always running, you should log out and back in to restore proper font smoothing in Quick Look.

You can always go into the System Preferences and set it back to "Automatic Font Smoothing", but you won't want to do that unless you use a CRT monitor.
