[Gimp-user] Text pixelated

I don't see the 'Legacy' option. How do I get that module/dialog
you're showing?

One last try.

You should always give full information Operating system / Gimp version.

Are you using Gimp 2.8? That of course is already 'legacy'   Using Gimp 2.10 the
default / legacy is stated earlier, is top left corner of the Layers dock.

Back to the pixelated text. With those tiny characters, lower case is only 8
pixels high, anti-aliasing is a major part of the rendering in a bitmap (raster)
image. The only way around is make the text larger.

Then it depends on purpose. Are you going to print these (bingo?) as cards? or
part of a web page or...some other use.

As earlier post, some other application might be better suited than Gimp.
Inkscape would handle the text better, and exported as a PDF text will scale
correctly on a computer display. There is a problem there with your uncommon
bahnschrift font. Than needs embedding correctly in the PDF. Do not use Gimp to
create a PDF.

A couple of examples attached. Comparison between an Inkscape PDF and Gimp
zoomed in to  400%  and if it attaches the PDF.
