Office 2013 Font Rendering Problem

  AaronG 11:19 29 Jul 2013

Hi all, I have a problem with Office 2013. I recently upgrade from Office 2010 and the font rendering was normal but now in 2013 the font appears somewhat blurred and less crisp/defined. Font rendering is okay in all other applications except Office 2013.

Here are some images to show the problem more clearly.

Windows Live Mail at the top and Outlook at the bottom. 1">[click here, here are 2 images showing the same document in WordPad and Word 2013. 2">[click here am running Windows 7 64bit SP1 and Office 2013 is fully updated.

Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

Hi Woolwell, yes they print fine.

Woolwell, I have tried the hardware acceleration to no avail. Still got the problem.

Therefore see my 11.27 am post.

I have tried to 11.27AM post, I see little change, in fact the text looks a little more 'jagged' at times.

What is your OS and how much RAM and what graphics do you have?

  AaronG 12:50 29 Jul 2013

OS is Windows 7-64bit. 8GB RAM NVIDIA GeForce 330GT Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400S

I don't know if this will make any difference but Control Panel - Appearance and Personalization - Display - try Adjust Clear Type Text.
