Below are two screenshots, the left from JUCE, the right from PhotoShop.
These are using the same font (Avenir Light), but as can be seen, JUCE’s rendering is significantly heavier. I experience this with all fonts, not just this one, and particularly on OS X.
Is there any way in JUCE to achieve a lighter rendering?
This issue only applies to light text on dark background. JUCE renders, dark on light with a lighter weight.
