So what are your text-editor fonts?

And you can't see much code through that small oval :online2long:. Must be a bit tricky ;)

I use Source Code Pro although I also liked Inconsolata.

Hotdog stand theme for coloring, and comic sans for the font. The only true way to program.

For a very long time, I used to use Source Insight. Check out some of the other screens on their Features page.

I used more colors towards the blacks, blues, and greens, but I loved the different font sizes and typefaces for different syntactic parts.

I have come to relish the default font and colours in whatever editor I am using. Not the exciting answer you were looking for but I have my reasons.

I used to spend a long time configuring everything I used. Code editors, office suites, operating system settings, default applications. If it had a setting, I scrutinised it to make sure it looked and behaved in a way that was perfect for me.

I think I stopped bothering before Chrome was released but Chrome really drove the message home. Software creators spend a long time choosing default settings. Chrome's interface didn't have many options for me to tweak it but the default settings were damn good and after a couple of days I didn't even notice the things I would have liked to change.

Accepting the defaults means I am comfortable using the same software on public computers and I can start work immediately after installing stuff on a new computer. The defaults for most applications are perfectly serviceable and I can get back to work within 2 hours of buying a new computer (as I discovered about a year ago).

Don't get me wrong, sometimes the occasional option needs to be changed. I like to tighten up the warnings settings in Eclipse, for example, and I like my Windows taskbar on the left of the screen.

Fonts and colours are way down on my priority list and I play fast and loose with the brightness setting to prevent eye strain.
