I'm missing text display quality settings (esp. ClearType) under Visio 2010. Any idea how to turn on ClearType rendering?

    This seems to be a known issue, and not configurable. The registry key that fixed this on 2007 doesn't work on 2010 (I just tried it). – bwall Jun 9 '11 at 23:46

    What OS are you using? I think that ClearType is an OS wide preference in Vista and 7. – leinad13 Jul 14 '11 at 16:08

For Windows 10:

  1. Open Settings in Start Menu, choose System and click Advanced display settings in Display.

    Tip: In Windows 10 Technical Preview computer, find Advanced display settings in PC settings/PC...

  2. Tap ClearType text to continue.


This is for the system, I don't know how well it will help you, but it's worth a shot.

To enable and set up ClearType, follow these steps:

  1. open the control panel
  2. appearance and personalization
  3. Display
  4. Adjust ClearType text
  5. follow through the setup

it may also help to calibrate your display (this is completely optional)

  1. follow the first 3 steps of the ClearType setup
  2. Calibrate color
  3. follow setup

You can also just do the calibrate display and the ClearType setup will als be at the end of it

I hope this helped
