Type looks jagged/pixelated inside Illustrator

Mar 1, 2013 1:01 PM

I'm having a tuff time searching around for solutions on this. Just bought a new Dell U2412M. Maybe I'm nit-picking too much, but my type in Illus looks slightly pixelated on the curves. I have anti-aliasing turned on in the pref and I'm zoomed at 100. Is there a way inside Illus I can fix this? Or is it just the limitations of my monitor?

    You may also try going to Illustrator > Preferences > General and making sure the Anti-aliased artwork box is checked.

    What scale is that screenshot 100%? What happens when you zoom in further.
