Windows tabs rendering with Serif fonts - how can I fix this?

Similar to previously reported issue:
https://support.rstudio.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/206375018-Windows-tabs-rendering-with-Serif-fonts-how-can-I-fix-this-

My installation is rendering the application (eg tabs, frames, other windows-style elements) text in a serif font (follow the above link for an example). Or here:

The console formatting is fine.

Any idea how to change this to a cleaner looking font?

What version of RStudio are you using? This sounds like something that should be fixed in the latest preview release.


#3

version is latest from the normal download section - 1.1.463.
What is the preview release - is that like a beta version?


#4

See: https://www.rstudio.com/products/rstudio/download/preview/ (a hyperlink was included in my previous response)


#5

Yeah, I know the link is there, but what does it mean for it to be a "preview" version (as opposed to the presumably current release version at https://www.rstudio.com/products/rstudio/download/#download) ?
Will I run any increased risk in regards to stability or compatibility?

This is happening to me, too. I'm using Version 1.1.463.

I recently started experimenting with the Preview build, and I have both the Preview and the Stable versions installed in different folders. Perhaps this is what caused the problem? Any advice?
