in Delphi IDE :: If you are like me, you look at your monitor screen for at least 8-12 hour per day. What's more, 90% of that time you are either writing Delphi / Pascal code or reading what you have written!

Having a readable, sharp, clean, crisp, nonospace font is a must if you do not want your eyes to suffer (and want more code per line)!

Read the full article to learn how to Choose the Best Font for your Delphi / Pascal Code.

You left out the built-in option of Lucida Console, and also Lucida Sans typewriter. I much prefer Lucida Console to Courier New, and if you like more space between the rows, Lucida Sans Typewriter is nice too.

I tried the progy fonts and looked at the others. My current selection of the ttf Dark Courier – also a free font, is much more readable and sizes much better.

I’d be happy to send you a zip of the font if you can’t find it.

I do all my work in Consolas 11pt. Consolas is not free but it gets installed together with Office so many of us have it on the computer.

Hi, I also use Consolas 11pt (like gabr) and I find this to be the best font for code.
It should be added to you list.

@gabr, Luis,

Thanks for pointing that one out. I’ve added it to the list. I’ve also added one more free font for small screens “Leros”.
