What's your favorite font in NetBeans IDE? For me, I really like "Consolas 18 Bold".
It always looks really good and sharp:
I also switched to Consolas, but in 14pt and plain.
Why Netbeans? I don't have this font. Linux Gentoo
Yes, excellent readability, but it is necessary to take into account that with the bold attribute is lost such a nice functionality of NetBeans as the accenting by bold the first sentence in the JavaDoc. Also the names of static methods with italic style become less conspicuous.
If you have linux, look here: http://www.rushis.com/2013/03/consolas-font-on-ubuntu/
But DejaVu Sans Mono is more readable for me.
Now that you brought up fonts, it would be cool if IDEs would not offer proportional fonts for code editors.Fwiw, I always go with the defaults. Defaults usually point to system fonts and system fonts are good enough (otherwise my eyes would hurt just looking at the desktop).
I really like Source Code Pro. It's very readable and easy to distinguish between the number 1 and letter "l"
Consolas has become my standard Windows text editor font. Very easy on the eye and no confusion between characters. I wouldn't set it to bold though as you would miss out on some syntax highlighting niceness.
I still prefer old-fashioned Courier New with web browsers and Lucida Console for terminals.
I've been using Monospaced 11 lately. Consolas is too "squished" horizontally for me, even at larger sizes. I used to use ProggyCleanTTSZ in non-Java-based editors (which I liked a LOT) but it doesn't render well in NetBeans - the letters get color pixelated on the edges.
I find that I prefer having a wider font at smaller sizes, as opposed to a narrower font at larger sizes. I'm old enough that I wear bifocals now and everything's out of focus anyway unless I ride them down my nose quite a way. :)
I also use Consolas, but in 14pt, I think Consolas should be standard in Netbeans.
