Upgraded to O.S. 9.21. Now Futura font is fuzzy. - Mac Applications & Software

I upgraded from System 8.6 to 9.21, and now my Futura font is fuzzy. With System 8.6, it was sharp. What do I need to do to make the font sharp? I use Suitcase 3. I've activated Futura in Suitcase and the Suitcase extension is in the Extensions folder, but Futura still looks blurry, while other fonts, like Times, are still sharp. ATM 4 has been in the Disabled Control panels for years....

    I upgraded from System 8.6 to 9.21, and now my Futura font is fuzzy.
    With System 8.6, it was sharp.

    What do I need to do to make the font sharp?

    I use Suitcase 3. I've activated Futura in Suitcase and the Suitcase
    extension is in the Extensions folder, but Futura still looks blurry,
    while other fonts, like Times, are still sharp.

    Anti-aliasing was set to "Off" in the Appearance control panel. I turned
    it on, but as I expected, it didn't help, because the description of
    anti-aliasing in the Appearance control panel is to "Smooth all fonts
    on-screen", which implies that it doesn't affect printed text.

    Oh, swell. Thanks for completely omitting to include, in your original
    moan, the fact that you're using Suitcase. Yes, of course you do. (Don't
    know about ATM.) m.

    I DID write in the first letter of this chain that I have Suitcase and A.T.M.
