How to make the Pixel fonts look clean

Hi - this is not a "how do I change the font" post - you answered that 1000 times.

What I am hoping to understand is how to make the fonts look clear? On my machine running 1920x1080 on ULTRA settings the fonts still look very tiny and almost blurry.

On all of your screenshots the fonts look small, but are crystal clear. Is there a step I am missing? I have tried making the fonts bigger, but they start to look even more blocky and unreadable. I like the look of your UI and I don't want to change it.

Do I need to figure out a custom UI scale setting myself for my client to make things look "sharp"?

Thanks for the help!

Poon, try this:

Go to Interface/AddOns/ShestakUI/Config

Edit Fonts.lua
- change all font size 8 to 7
- Combat text font and Cooldowns timer font: from 16 to 13
- Nameplates font should still be 8

Edit Settings.lua
- ["pixel_font_size"] = 7,

Just play around with the font sizes until you get the clear font you’re looking for. I play on a 2560x1440 resolution so this worked out for me quite well.

Pixel font looks fine up to 1200 pixels vertically. Anything higher is not.

After fresh install they seem to look fine and more readable to me. Not sure what changed on my machine, but they look fine now.

Thanks and sorry!

This must be done first thing before you write something.
