Set default font in Emacs

September 2nd, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

Within emacs select “options” from the menu bar: then “Customize emacs” –> “Specific Face…”

Type “default” (, or “def”) then press enter.

Then you can mess with all the settings. I have “misc-fixed” set for my “Font-family”

When you’re done just save the file as you would any file in Emacs: c-x c-s

    Thank you!

    This little tip finally let me use custom faces in Emacs without a registry hack or knowing the esoteric faces config string in emacs to set it manually.

    For anyone else using the above advice, note that ‘def’ is short for ‘default’ which you would see if you hit the tab key (at least in v22).
