Office 2013 drops cleartype, fonts a disaster. Any way to fix it?

<< < (5/5)

Things are getting iffy in windowsland re: fonts.
Cleartype getting replaced by directwrite (or whatever the new tech for font rendering is called; the horrible one I call it :) ).
More and more apps are moving to the new rendering, and only some provide an option to 'disable graphics-accelerated rendering' or some such. Chrome and mailbird do have a fallback option. Using it, plus mactype is saving me.

But mactype is abandonware, and it's not problem-free.

Right now any office 2013 app is unusable on a big monitor with low DPI (for me)...

Just so I can understand the problem, what about for example Kingsoft Office? It's fine (sorta!) if it doesn't work for you, but just so I know what the problem is, I don't even know where to look to find your font rendering tech in that program!
