My fonts in general within QtCreator inside Ubuntu 13.04 looks 'ugly' when compared to how they looked in 12.10.

12.10 still used Qt4, so did something regarding the font rendering in Qt5 and the most up to date QtCreator change then?

If so, is there a workaround and or fix for this please? Seeing that this affects the Ubuntu-SDK (which of course is using QtCreator) one would assume that a fix must be available ;)

The fonts go back to pretty if you use MainView instead of Rectangle as the root element, at least for me. Check the Ubuntu-touch style guide for details about the font styles and recommendations on which ones to use where. –  hbdgaf Apr 26 '13 at 12:45
