    The editor font is getting smaller and smaller. not easy on the eyes at all.
    There is now a default blurry font rendering.

    And even when put on sharp it still worse than the old unity font of 2022.

    Please unity don't make it harder to read.

    There is a way to sharpen the default font in Unity?

    Anyway, I haven't noticed a difference between 2021.3 and 2023.3 sharpness-wise but the characters do feel smaller in 2023.3.

    ( changing the sharpening is added in 2023 )

    Yes they feel smaller, maybe its kerning that has changed but something has changed and its worse.

    Oh, I hadn't noticed.

    I do see a difference between the default sharpness and the maximum in your images and in mine too.

    And the maximum sharpness is sharper than the 2021.3 default one in 2021.3, as far as I'm concerned. :)

    Looks like they are using some SDF library that lacks the most basic quality font rendering features, whatever the reasoning was for it, it is not because of user first, it was the xyproblem they tried to ducktape over with sdf due to technical limiations of their internals.

    Here is some more info

    https://forum.unity.com/threads/edi...n-2023-1-on-windows-10-in-light-mode.1451632/

    The bug is still open so I think it will be addressed.

    I don't know why they thought SDFs were a good choice for the editor, just render text normally at an appropriate size for each screen dpi.
