SSMS 2016 - Fonts blurry RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Using SSMS 2016 (13.0.16100.1) I notice that the fonts are quite a bit more blurry than when using SSMS 2014. A side-by-side comparison of SSMS 2016 and SSMS 2014 shows a stark difference in font quality. This is noticeable when using either the Surface Pro 3 screen or an external monitor. In both cases SSMS 2014 us crisp and clear whereas SSMS 2016 is blurry. This can be seen both in the menu bar as well as the object explorer.

    Is anyone else experiencing this?

    Thanks.

  • WORKAROUND -

    Today I found that checking the box:

    • DISABLE DISPLAY SCALING ON HIGH DPI MONITORS

    on the COMPATIBILITY tab of the exe/shortcut seems to make the fonts clear, sharp and no longer blurry.
