Just search into IDE folder for "/jre/lib/fonts/fonts.conf" open it on any text editor and remove the value of weight to empty like this https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/JRE-205#comment=27-2064737
then your font is going to be fine again. Work on Ubuntu 16.04.

Would've been nice to explain how to set custom JVM options. It's nowhere in app settings.
I found this page, which tells where it is... it's very unexpectedly hidden in the "Help" menu:

I just switched to OpenJDK 1.8 and it seems not to have messy font config files. Worked for me straight away after the switch. Will keep a note of this method, though!
