Subpixel Antialiasing Default

Responsive

To control the font smoothing of an element at a specific breakpoint, add a {screen}: prefix to any existing font smoothing utility. For example, use md:antialiased to apply the antialiased utility at only medium screen sizes and above.

Customizing

Responsive and State Variants

By default, only responsive variants are generated for font smoothing utilities.

You can control which variants are generated for the font smoothing utilities by modifying the fontSmoothing property in the variants section of your tailwind.config.js file.

For example, this config will also generate hover and focus variants:

// tailwind.config.js
module.exports = {
variants: {
    // ...
-   fontSmoothing: ['responsive'],
+   fontSmoothing: ['responsive', 'hover', 'focus'],
}
}

Disabling

If you don't plan to use the font smoothing utilities in your project, you can disable them entirely by setting the fontSmoothing property to false in the corePlugins section of your config file:

// tailwind.config.js
module.exports = {
corePlugins: {
    // ...
+   fontSmoothing: false,
}
}
