    Basic Text Question

    Bob from Alexandria
      I am just learning how to use F/W. I have been using D8 for some time. I am trying to recreate the image of a book cover. I simply need to put text on a layer and have it look acceptable. Pretty basic. However, no matter what I do (small image 150 x200 or large image 800X950), when I type the text (Times New Roman) at just about any font size, it looks horrible (jagged/blurry). I am using the text tool on the vector pallet and I am keeping all the default settings. Am I missing something?

          You might be. Are you typing out complete paragraphs with the intention
          of exporting text in image format? Do you have antialiasing turned off
          or on?
