    SQL Developer editor readability

    767043
      I have just switched to SQL Developer from Toad and I have found a couple problems with the editor that make it unreadable.

      The first issue is that the fonts appear blockier and heavier. On both Toad and SQL Developer I'm using Consolas with size 12. I've tried turning the "enable text anti-aliasing" on and off and they are both bad. Could the issue be that SQL Developer is not using Window's clear type fonts? If so can this be fixed?

      The second issue is that the color of the whitespace characters (spaces and line-breaks) in SQL Developer are way too dark. I am unable to find a setting to lighten them up. Am I missing the setting, or can this capability be added?
