Ctrl+Alt+S the Settings/Preferences icon

Use this page to configure font for the IntelliJ IDEA editor.




Use this option to select your font. The Show only monospaced fonts option if selected shortens the list of available fonts.


Select the size of your font. If you need to quickly change the font size while in the editor, use the Change font size (Zoom) with Ctrl + Mouse Wheel option located in Settings/Preferences | Editor | General.

Line spacing

Specify the factor of the point size to define the vertical distance between lines of code in the editor. The default value 1.2 corresponds to the 120% of the point size. You can alter the factor and evaluate the effect in the preview area.

Fallback font

Select a font to use if IntelliJ IDEA encounters a character that is not part of the main font.

Enable font ligatures

Select this option to enable font ligatures.

Restore Defaults

This option becomes available when you override the default font settings through the Console Font page located in Settings/Preferences | Editor | Color Scheme. Press this option, if you need to restore your default settings.
