I guess you would need a sub-4k display in order to answer my question. Thanks anyway.

I cringed when I updated straight from 10.14.6 to 10.15.6 thinking that it could get even worse, but was shocked when I discovered that Apple seemed to have finally (after several years) restored effective font smoothing in PDFKit in Mojave. Since Apple often seems to move in mysterious ways, I have to ask if anyone knows if the effective font smoothing is still there in Big Sur or if they’ve taken it away again.
