Description Mark Simon 2015-10-29 01:17:40 UTC
I would like to change font in the formula bar to a monospaced font, or at least have the option to do so.

Of all the places, the formula bar is where you can least afford to confuse “I” with “l” with “1” and where counting parentheses needs all the help it can get.

I also think that the change to italics is a bad one. Most screens do not render italics as cleanly as regular fonts, and some characters do not display as distinctly when displayed in italics.

The same applies, by the way, to the sheet tab names.

Is there any news on this? I notice that the font is not in italics.

It’s been a while … ?
