Issue Details

In some version of LabVIEW, the texts are blurry in the editor, if the font size is set smaller than 10. Although it is normal when the font size is set larger than 11, the font is too big to fit into the Icon.



  1. The Font of the text is changed to another one. Change it back to Small Fonts.
  2. The reason for this situation is the outcome of anti-aliasing by Operation System. It can be resulted by the following methods:

Methods 1: Modified the LabVIEW.ini file
  1. Navigate to C:\Program Files(x86)\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2017
  2. Open the LabVIEW.ini file
  3. Add FontCodePageList=Small Fonts,1252 , then save and restart LabVIEW.
Methods 2: Change the Region in Windows
Navigate to Control Panel>>Region>>Formats. Set Format to English (United States) and relaunch LabVIEW.
