No way to change editor's font?

  • I’ve been looking for a way to change the display font from Courier to something else, but I cannot find the option to do so anywhere in Notepad++ itself, nor does a search here on the word “font” find anything remotely related to it. I get the idea that I’m stuck with Courier (or whatever the font is).

    So, can someone confirm that I’m stuck with the existing font, or give me the apparently top-secret method for changing fonts?

  • It’s not all that difficult to find:

    Settings menu
    Style Configurator…
    then on the righthand top there is a groupbox called Font Style

    I like the “Consolas” font. :)

  • Hello Mike and Scott,

    To be exact, I would add :

    • Choose the menu option Settings - Style Configurator…

    • In the Style configurator dialog, choose the Global Styles language

    • Then , select the Default Style style

    • Finally, in the Font Style area, you can select your favourite font and/or its size, too

    Best Regards,


    P.S. :

    Mike, prefer monospaced fonts to others => Each character will use the same physical place, on your screen :-)
