"Automatic" font in Tools > Options > Environment RRS feed

  • Question

  • In either VS 2010 or 2013, under Tools > Options > Environment > Fonts and Colors, Environment Font has a selection called "Automatic" set as the default font.  What is that font or how can I find out?  Thanks for your attention.

  • "By default, the environment font is tied to a system font that appears as 9 pt Segoe UI in current versions of Windows." (see Fonts and Formatting for Visual Studio).

  • Hi John Boncek,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    Environment Font:

    Changes the font style and size for all IDE user interface elements. For example, this option applies to the Start Page but would not affect the Output window.

    Use Defaults:

    Resets the font and color values of the list item selected in Show settings for. The Use button appears when other display schemes are available for selection.

    Please refer to here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/kw7t0545(v=vs.120).aspx

    Like Sergey Vlasov said, use default, the environment font is tied to a system font that appears as 9 pt Segoe UI in current versions of Windows.

    Best regards,

    Joyce
