Re: Disable font smoothing...
Authored by: macandrew on Aug 02, '02 12:36:25PM

It's worth mentioning that "Disable Quartz text smoothing" disables an option that only became available on 10.1.5. Previous versions of OS X did not make Quartz antialiasing routines available to Carbon apps (only Cocoa apps). Presumably the speed difference comes from mixing two graphics APIs (Carbonized Quickdraw and Quartz); hopefully this will be addressed in Jaguar; ditto for proper support of PS Type 1 fonts.
