Table Text Livecode vs .....

Firstly I have an iMac, none retina.

1. Just checked Pages & Numbers and they both appear similar to LC.

2. Then checked TextEdit and that appears the same as Filemaker.

The rendering of the text in Filemaker & TextEdit appears to my poor eyesight to be more black (if that is possible).
My poor eyesight is the reason I notice this in the first place, because I have the same database in both LC & Filemaker.
I prefer the scripting of LC to Filemaker but the display of the same table is much clearer in Filemaker for the same font (more blackness).

Perhaps there is an anti alias setting or such like, that has not been implemented in LC.

If so it would be good to get that option?

There used to be (not sure if it’s there now) a terminal command

defaults write -g CGFontRenderingFontSmoothingDisabled -bool NO

and probably others for this sort of thing. Perhaps they have to be implemented in app.
