Cannot change font in atom


I downloaded and installed Fira Mono from
I can see the font in other editors, I know it is installed.
Whenever I try to change to that font, either from the config file or from the settings, I get the default font that you get when it doesn t find the font you inserted


Fira Mono Medium isn’t a font family. Fira Mono is. There is an interesting quirk on macOS where you can specify the font weight as part of the font family if you format it like this: FiraMono-Medium. So if you’re on Windows or Linux, specifying Fira Mono should work.


You’re right. Thank you
