Great Programming Font Updated

Filed under: Programming — Jan Goyvaerts @ 11:31

I just received an email from Damien Guard to let me know he has updated his Envy Code R font. That’s one of my three favorite programming fonts.

He reduced the font’s line height. It will now fit about the same number of lines on the screen at a given font size as the other two fonts. The repertoire of accented characters has been expanded. The font is still restricted to the Latin alphabet.

  3. This is a limitation of EditPad when painting text with overhang. It’s particularly pronounced with italic text at large font sizes.

    The next free minor update of EditPad will have a more intelligent painting algorithm that makes sure the overhang is not clipped by the next bit of text.

  4. Fonts are nice, but what size do you prefer for your Delphi work? Background color? Just got a new machine & screen, and I had to come here to get my fonts.

  5. In EditPad Pro, I use 10 point Bitstream Vera Sans Mono, with the “white on black” color scheme selected in Options, Preferences, Colors. In Delphi I use 10 point Lucida Console with the color scheme set as close as I can make it to the one in EditPad Pro.

    I use dual 1920*1080 24″ matte LCDs.
