I've got several coding fonts that I love. I've noticed that the latest versions of Xcode fail to render many of them, silently failing back to SF Mono when these fonts are selected in the Preferences.
Here's a video demonstrating this problem when selecting the 'Fantasque' font:
Has anyone else run into this, and have a workaround?
Things I've tried:
- verify that the affected fonts work elsewhere (Sublime Text, VSCode, Terminal)
- uninstall and reinstall the affected fonts
- clear macOS font cache and reboot
Any ideas would be appreciated.
You don't mention FontBook, but that would be my first step in this example.
Confirm supported/healthy fonts, houseclean duplicates, outdated, etc.
Still no joy, help Xcode 10.1 take a clean breath by deleting all plists w/xcode in the name located in~/Library/Preferences. Xcode will make new ones next start.
Also confirm you've not renamed Xcode and it is intalled to /Applications on the boot drive and that your drive has several tens GB free space, trash emptied.
