Changing letter-spacing in the editor?


#1
atom-text-editor::shadow * {
  letter-spacing: .03em;
 }

I tried this, and although I can see the difference, it seems like the cursor is now off to the left by a bit.

I read this post, and tried reloading Atom. The cursor is just off enough to be annoying. Is there any css I can set to knock the cursor right a couple of pixels?

I don’t think Atom supports this yet because it measures character width by querying the font metrics, not font metrics after CSS styling.
