Bug Description

Version: 4.0.7, Windows 7 x64

Font rendering in Eschema schematics is quite hard to read, especially when zoomed out but even with fairly large text sizes. See the attached examples.

It would be nice if either a better rendering engine or at least some hinting could be used to improve the appearance of text.
