SoapUI 3.6 Look & Feel on Mac OS

Hello,

I installed the SoapUI Pro 3.6 for Mac OS today. The native look and feel is no longer same in 3.6 as it was in 3.5.1. Many of the fonts look horrible in the Java. The native look and feel allows use of custom fonts in the editor.

In 3.5.1, the native look and feel was somewhat acceptable. Is anyone else seeing UI issues on Mac ??

You can modify 'Info.plist' in soapUI-3.6.app by using Ctl + mouse click or right mouse button and choose 'Show Package Contents'.
The format of original Info.plist is not so beautiful, you can use XMLSpear to format it.
Then do the following steps
1. Find
<!-- I4J_INSERT_PROPERTIES -->

2. add
<key>apple.awt.graphics.UseQuartz</key>
<string>true</string>

=> for beautiful text rendering
2. add
<key>swing.crossplatformlaf</key>
<string>apple.laf.AquaLookAndFeel</string>

=> for native look and feel
3. launch soapui, you will see what you want.

Hi,

I just tried out the SoapUI 3.6.2 from Wednesday, 09 February 2011 10:33
and it's still not working without the specified properties in the plist file.

Please do include this fix in the next release

Hi,

Thank you for noticing this.
I'm very sorry for the inconvenience, this time it should really be added to nightly-build, please try it when you have time.
