Configure ClearType font smoothing

Sep 11, 2013

ClearType font smoothing (also known as Sub-pixel font rendering) improves the quality of displayed fonts beyond that available through traditional font smoothing or anti-aliasing. You can turn this feature on or off, or specify the type of smoothing by editing the following setting in wfclient.ini.

FontSmoothingType = number

where number can take one of the following values:
Value Behavior
0 The local preference on the device is used. This is defined by the FontSmoothingTypePref setting.
1 No smoothing
2 Standard smoothing
3 ClearType (horizontal sub-pixel) smoothing

Both standard smoothing and ClearType smoothing increase Receiver's bandwidth requirements significantly.

Important: The server can configure FontSmoothingType through the ICA file. This takes precedence over the value set in wfclient.ini. If the server sets the value to 0, the local preference is determined by another setting in wfclient.ini:

FontSmoothingTypePref = number

where number can take one of the following values:
Value Behavior
0 No smoothing
1
2 Standard smoothing
3 ClearType (horizontal sub-pixel) smoothing (default)
