Property Value

true if the ClearType is used during text rendering; otherwise, false. The default value is false.


The following situations do not support ClearType antialiasing:

  • Text is rendered on a printer.
  • A display is set for 256 colors or less.
  • Text is rendered to a terminal server client.
  • The font is not a TrueType or an OpenType with TrueType outlines. For example, the following do not support ClearType antialiasing: Type 1 fonts, Postscript OpenType fonts without TrueType outlines, bitmap fonts, vector fonts, and device fonts.
  • The font has tuned embedded bitmaps, only for the font sizes that contain the embedded bitmaps. For example, this occurs commonly in East Asian fonts.
