Newly installed font displayed as italic only in Notepad++

  • I downloaded and installed the font Courier Code. It works normally in other softwares (MS Notepad and LibreOffice Writer) but in Notepad++, it is always displayed as italic. Here are all the details:

    • Windows builtin font manager does not display the roman font as italic.
    • I restarted both Notepad++ and the computer multiple times and tried to run Notepad++ as an administrator.
    • This site seems to be the original place where the font was released. I tried another site too but it did not change anything (even if the font was in another format).
    • If I install only the roman TTF file, Notepad++ no longer displays all text as italic. I thought it could be a decent workaround, but the automatically generated bold and italic are not monospace…

  • The spam filter does not allow links so as a replacement: you can find the font Courier Code with a simple search, just don’t mistake it with the more popular Courier Prime Code. The primary source is on Font Library and I also tried to download it from fontain.

  • Open any editor or font viewer.
    And you will see that the “Courier Code” font contains only italic characters!
