Is there a way to disable or reduce font smoothing / antialiasing in the Matlab Editor?
Compared to the Command Window and e.g. the Editor in R2020a, the Editor in R2021b now renders fonts differently, with an overly smoothed result that I find quite fatiguing at least on my display.
The strength of the effect differs depending on the font (top: Editor, bottom: Command Window).
(The appearance is not perfectly reproduced here due to the inherent lossy image compression on Matlab Answers.)

Hi Andres,
To disable the "font smoothing / antialiasing" in the Matlab Editor in Linux, deselect the option "Use antialiasing to smooth desktop fonts" . On Microsoft® Windows® and macOS platforms, MATLAB uses system setting for antialiasing.
For further information, please refer to the following Documentation Page.
