It seems the font/size pref for the source window is now taken into  
account on the Mac. That's great!

Given I'm not doing any TeXing right now, there's not much I can  
report unfortunately.

Just one thing: compared with the other front ends I'm used to  
(Textures and TeXShop), the output in the preview window is thinner  
(ie the glyphs are thinner), and I suspect a day of work TeXing would  
make my eyes a bit tearful in the evening. I imagine that's because of  
different anti-aliasing with Poppler or Qt compared with PDFKit (for  
which the settings are probably taken from System Prefs > Appearance >  
Font Smoothing Style).

Is there a way to alter anti-aliasing for Poppler (by setting a hidden  
pref maybe), such that Computer Modern glyphs looks thicker, pretty  
much the same as with PDFKit?
