TrueType Fonts Displayed with Jagged Edges


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Word for Windows, version 6.0


TrueType fonts are displayed with jagged edges in a Word 6.0 for Windows document, while ATI Crystal fonts display with non-jagged edges. For example, a TrueType 6-point font may display with jagged edges while an ATI Crystal 6-point font displays with sharp clean edges.


TrueType fonts are not being "anti-aliased," while the Crystal fonts are. Anti-aliasing is the process of adding gray scale around the edges of a font to eliminate any jagged edges. This process occurs when ATI Crystal fonts are run through the video card.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Word for Windows. This problem was corrected in versions 6.0a and later of Word for Windows. To obtain Word 6.0c, call the Microsoft Order Desk at (800) 360-7561 and request the Word 6.0c update. If you are outside the United States, contact your local subsidiary.
