Smooth your font in your Java IDE

I have just installed gdipp which makes your windows font rendered like MacOS and it looks really awesome. However I found a tiny problem is the equal symbol "=" is rendered as the minus symbol "-" in my Intellij IDEA, and someone using Netbeans also reported the same issue. So here is the solution based on the issue discussion thread. Add the following section in your gdipp_setting.xml file:
  <process name="idea.*">
   <renderer>20</renderer>
  </process>
So the code means using GetGlyphOutline to render font in process named "idea.*", specifically my IntelliJ IDEA process. Now everything is perfect!
