It could be that I have something wrong with my eyes, but the ClearType fonts that Microsoft now uses for its new Office 2007 suite is incredibly painful to my eyes. If you would like to disable ClearType fonts in Office 2007 and/or have Office respect system settings, try the following:
  1. Start -> Run -> Regedt32
  2. Navigate to the following key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Common
  3. Add the following DWORD value: "RespectSystemFontSmooth"
  4. Set the value to 1
  5. Close RegEdit
That's it. Naturally, restart Office if it's already running, but you should notice that the Office 2007 suite now respects the system settings for font smoothing. Posted on Friday, August 17, 2007 9:08 PM | Back to top
