public virtual bool UseAntiAlias { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the print preview uses anti-aliasing; otherwise, false. The default is false.

Anti-aliasing, also known as gray scaling, uses several shades of gray around areas of curves and diagonals in text to give the text a smoother appearance.


While using anti-aliasing makes the print preview look better, it can slow down the rendering speed.
