Hi,

What's the coding font used in the screencast on the frontpage of sublimetext.com?

Thanks!

I'm also interested in knowing the font.

It has that nice OSX style "bold" look too it, but the screencast is of the windows version.

Looks like Consolas (or derivate from that)

The font is Menlo Regular, rendered on OS X - this is the default font on OS X. You'll see different window borders on the front page depending on which OS you're using, but the actual animation content is the same.

Very smart!

John, do you know if there is any way to get mac font rendering on windows for ST2? I have tried GDI++ but it doesn't seem to affect ST2.

While Core Text obviously isn't available on Windows, you can use DirectWrite via the "directwrite" font option.

Back when I used ST2 on Windows, gdipp did a very nice job combined with Consolas. Try it!

Can I ask if there is any reason not to use directwrite vs the standard way SublimeText renders it?
