Notice how it says ‘Not Recommended’, but I have doing this for years without any problems, so I have no idea why they put that there…
This is a lot nicer if you ask me. It would even look better if it had anti-aliasing, but I did not manage to force it to do that (I tried adding
idea.vmoptions, but that did not seem to do anything).
Note that this only changes the font that the IDE itself uses. If you want to change the font that you see your code in, go to
Colors & Fonts >
Font. I really like
Lucida Sans Typewriter or
DejaVu Sans Mono.
Develop with pleasure and good looks 🙂
