What is the default font in Atom?


#1

I really like it and I’m having trouble identifying what it is!

From editor.less: font-family: Inconsolata, Monaco, Consolas, 'Courier New', Courier;

Ah, thanks! Much appreciated.


#4

If you like it (as do I), but think the angled “straight” quotes are a bummer, check out [Inconsolata-dz][1].

Been using that for years.

I want to write a paper with atom in markdown and export it to pdf. I want the pdf to have the font Times New Roman, 12 p. size. How do I do that?

Has the default font changed in the last 18 months?

I also like the default font, but it does not match any of the fonts in the list earlier in this thread. It is a fixed-width font that closely resembles Monaco, Courier, and Courier New, but has a number of distinct differences from those fonts.

Edit: Just found Inconsolata which is even closer to what I’m seeing, but still not quite the same. It’s slight taller and thicker than Inconsolata. Side-by-side comparison: link

Yes.

The default font is dependent on which OS you’re using:

Your themes can override the default fonts. Another very popular one is Fira Mono.
