text seems terribly jagged - Macromedia Fireworks

Hello First time open Fireworkes MX pc. Resolution 300, Type text in any font and it's terrible. Try the different Anti-Alias option. But still it's jagged. I can't see any information about it in Macromedia Website. So I probably miss something. Can any one tell me what is wrong? ( I tryed 3 different pc's) -- Ann...

    Hello
    First time open Fireworkes MX pc. Resolution 300,
    Type text in any font and it's terrible. Try the different Anti-Alias
    option. But still it's jagged.
    I can't see any information about it in Macromedia Website. So I probably
    miss something.
    Can any one tell me what is wrong? ( I tryed 3 different pc's)

    You didn't miss a thing.

    Nothing is wrong.... it's working the way it is supposed to. Most likely
    the zoom is set for something other than 100%. Things are only supposed to
    appear smooth/anti-aliased at 100% zoom. The fonts are being rasterized to
    your screen. When you zoom in or out, you are essentially stepping behind
    the wizard's curtain and through all the illusions (in that, this isn't
    something that the end-user will normally see, accessibility tools like the
    Screen Magnifer not withstanding).

    The fonts aren't being re-rasterized so you are seeing the "magnified"
    pixels including the transitional ones being used to anti-alias the fonts
    and make them LOOK smooth on screen.

    Are you trying to raise the resolution for print purposes? Do you own or
    have you considering using something like Freehand which is more suited for
    print media tasks?

    If not have you tried printing out a test print at 300 dpi? Things will
    always look better on the printer than the screen.

    Cheers,
    Sam

    You right. It's happens when I'm zooming. I use Freehand also. Fireworks
    for Html. I thought Fireworks will behave like Freehand with fonts.
    Thank you.
