[OS X TeX] CocoAspell & High Sierra

Has font smoothing in PDFKit been fixed in 10.13.1? Have you tried adjusting font smoothing from 0 to 3 to see what happens?

defaults -currentHost write -globalDomain AppleFontSmoothing -int X          for X = 0 to 3

Unfortunately, I have a feeling that this is the kind of thing that won’t get fixed until .3 or .4, if at all.

PDFKit is not the only thing affected by Apple’s constant fiddling. I have another application that was recently made compatible with 10.13.0, and then Apple released 10.13.1 and broke it again.

Has anyone on the list tried to do a fresh install of cocoAspell (2.5) under High Sierra? I haven't tried but am just curious whether an old problem re-occurred with the newest macOS version.

PS: High Sierra has been quite stable for me. The only negative has been that PDFKit seems to have regressed to having a fuzzy display of text on non-Retina displays and an annoying flash when refreshing a display on a Retina display.

Good Luck,
