Hello, I installed MATLAB 2016b on my PC but the font in Simulink is pretty strange. I do not find any entry in preference to change the font. Any idea?
In the image below, the red box shows a consistent font with MATLAB (good). But in the blue circles, the fonts are different and quite unreadable because of the blurred edge.
In the library explorer, the font is unreadable.
The following library explorer comes from 2016a, of which the font is nice.
In the Simulink Preference, there is no font options.
How can I restore the normal font in Simulink that I have never changed?
Thanks

I solved the problem.By using bisection search in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts, it was the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts\SimSun & NSimSum (TrueType) [or the value: SIMSUN_0.TTC] that caused the wired look. I delete this key temporarily. If you guys can fix this with a better solution, please let me know.

I've found another workaround. You can change the non-unicode option to English, which is in the control panel - region and time - Administrative - change system locale.
I have also tried the solution by deleting the terms in the register but it caused some font problems in other programs.
