To reproduce this, run the attached test program on a Windows machine with HiDPI scaling set to 125%.

The text in the Label and TextField is crisp, while the text in the TextArea is blurry. This may be a layout bug or a bug in the TextArea relating to the positioning of its content such that snap-to-pixel isn't working properly.

I have attached an image as well. If you zoom it up you will see that LCD text is used for all three strings.
Hi Kevin, In continuation to your previous comment, I am removing the regression label.

Prior to JDK 9 we didn't enable Hi-DPI for systems with 125% scaling. So even though this is technically a regression, it's probably more accurate to say that this is a bug in a new feature.

Looks to be a regression, Issue reproduces with 9 GA, but does not reproduce with 8 GA / 9 b90. Need to bisect JDK 9 builds.

Suspected check-in fix for : JDK-8091832

Does not reproduce with 9 b113 but reproduces with 9 b114
