I've tried several times in the last few days to like Menlo (and I'm

used to looking at.
I'm actually surprised that there is anyone who hadn't already
customized their Xcode fonts ;)
The fact is that, just as in any other area of typography, there are
dozens of typefaces to choose from*, with different pros and cons, and
people have very personal reasons for liking or disliking them. I
prefer Courier or Consolas, myself. Arguments about which fonts are
better or worse are as pointless as arguments about brace placement.
It's trivially easy to change the font, so just set it to whatever you
like best and it'll stay that way forever.
* Just google for [programmer font] and you'll find lots and lots of
articles and discussions comparing different ones. I don't think we
need to have another thread about that here... _______________________________________________
