Hi All,

Is there any way to change the default font when using the IDE in windows XP? I tried messing about with the preferences file, but couldn't make it switch to Courier New.

The reason I want (need) to do this, is because a lowercase L and a digit 1 are *exactly* the same in the default font. It's driving me nuts! (Lowercase L has been my default loop variable for more years than I care to remember, so you can imagine the confusion it causes).

I was born with a soldering iron in my hand. If you look very closely you can still see the scar.

You can edit on "preferences.txt" on
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Arduino
(username may be differ than "Administrator" depand on your current user)

you must close Arduino before edit, and made backup is recommended.

All parts' font and size can be changed here. Save and see what's changed!
