On one computer I have a nice lovely font that I've been using since i started programming. However, on the new, evil computer, the font is one that I'm not used. I've looked high and low and can't find the option to change it. Anyone know how?

I want my font to look like the image on top. Currently it looks like the image on bottom.

Thanks!

My font knowledge isn't deep.  I like "consolas" (which you should be able to grab) and "anonymous" for programming.

Windows -> Preference
General -> Appeareance -> Colors and Fonts -> Java editor text font
I have "Verdana", one of my favorite sans-serif fonts.
From the screenshot, I cannot tell what You are running on either of the editors but You can test around with diff fonts.

DejaVu Sans Mono is awesome, but I find that my remote X display just doesn't render it nearly that pretty (I'm spoiled on infinality font patches).  So I switched to Adobe's "Source Code Pro" Font for those emacs sessions on servers, which seems to better tolerate the atrocious default font rendering settings on Linux.

Comparing your screen to mine it does look like Consolas. If you don't have it on your system you can use a liberally licensed variant called Inconsolata.

Of course I meant the Mono version for coding, would be awkward otherwise.

Ah yeah I noticed that too. Didn't bother me as much, I mean everything looks a little different in linux, even eclipse, just subtleties, so I kinda went with it as if this was Dejavu - Linux Style   :D

I used that color scheme before, but it reminds me to an awfully soul sucking project so I drop it.

From that screenshot,
- ra4king uses Win 8
- ra4king has lots of project, some of them are naughty Tongue
- ra4king is too lazy to close projects

Why use the sin that is win8? (no offense, I just dislike it personally)

Busy between school, work, life, games, programming and general screwing around.
If you'd like some pixel art for your game, send me a PM, i'll see what I can do.

how could you have black background and bright text ? it would fuck my eyes up in a matter of seconds

also I have never more than the current project opened. I would imagine that eclipse needs a long time for a restart.
and also I like to "clean all open projects" frequently, since eclipse often times has problems and that fixes it...

Eclipse is designed for having tons of projects open -- a plugin project (any OSGi app) can have dozens of related projects.  It's just my ADD that keeps me from wanting to have unrelated projects cluttering up my screen.

If you think that dark theme is sexy, check out the Darcula theme in IDEA.  I might change to it eventually, since I always seem to end up with a dark theme in emacs anyway.

Eeuww, everything all dark gray.

The only thing I do in eclipse wrt the fonts is just making them smaller.

Yeah some projects are private and/or embarrassing Tongue
And what's the point of closing projects? Eclipse opens in 5 seconds, no slowdown from the number of projects open.

Dual monitor support, super fast and snappy, I don't mind metro, I love the new UI, including ribbon in Explorer and new copy dialog.
Otherwise, my parents paid for the $40 upgrade haha.

I prefer it to a bright color scheme, especially since I work at night and my eyes would kill me with bright colors.
Just like sproingie said, Eclipse is designed for many projects. Startup is still 5 seconds, barely any change when I closed all the projects to test.
I never have any problems with Eclipse that have needed me to clean all projects or to muck with build settings.

If you think that dark theme is sexy, check out the Darcula theme in IDEA.  I might change to it eventually, since I always seem to end up with a dark theme in emacs anyway.
That theme is what will finally cause me to jump ship and switch to IDEA one day. For now, I'm lazy Smiley


If anyone wants my color scheme for Eclipse: http://eclipsecolorthemes.org/?view=theme&id=1871
That website has MANY gorgeous themes premade and has an interface to create your own too!

To import a theme, download the EPF file, and import it using File -> Import -> General -> Preferences

Hey, I made a theme on Eclipse Color Theme a while ago! Didn't think many people knew about that site. If anyone wants, you can view the theme I made here.
