In visual studio using the Fira Code font, is not rendering nice at 100%, no matter what font-size is being used.

Using setting 110% results in a nice rendering!

Is it the only font you have this problem with? Do you have same problem with Fira Mono? Whas version of Windows are you on? Do you have clear type enabled? What resolution is your screen? Can you attach screenshots?

Only with FiraCode rendering is not OK, and only at exaxt 100%, see screenshots at 100% and 101%. Changing font-size or font variant has same effect. No issue with default Consolas font. Fira Mono regular has same problem at 100%. No difference between ttf or otf font.

Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise 15.2 (26430.6)
Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 x64
Screen resolution is 1920x1200

Tried a different font Dejavu Sans Mono, and it displays same problem. So probably not a FiraCode font problem, but likely a VS problem.

Issue is fixed by enabling Cleartype in Windows!

I have ClearType enabled but still not fixed. Set scale level to 99% or 101% fix it.
