I noticed that my 4coder font at any size is a little thicker and less crisp than other applications. Here I have emacs on the left and 4coder on the right. They both use Consolas (16 on emacs, 12 or so on 4coder)
Maybe there's Antialiasing being applied. I have the super version so is there a section I can tamper with that can achieve crisper fonts?
