Description Ricky Helgesson 2013-11-29 00:54:35 UTC
There is a remarkably nice programming font, called PragmataPro. The font is designed by a programmer, for programmers - and the guy has done a great job. I installed in on my MacBook Pro with Retina screen and it work well in all apps except Xamarin Studio.

When I use the PragmataPro font in Xamarin Studio, every 5th letter or so is clipped on the right side. The error is not only in the text editor but in the whole IDE.

All Mac

I have X.S. 4.2.2 (build 2) on Mac. I also have a Retina screen on my Mac, maybe that is what's making the difference. Every 10th character or so is cut off and exclamation marks are often totally invisible, which makes it hard to read code. Providing screen shot: http://imagebin.org/286980
