# Choosing a Font for gVim

| Comments |

Unclear difference in appearance between 1 with l, 0 with O can be a source of inconvenience for computer users. This summer, I’ve found this site informative, but I quickly forgot it.

Installation of many fonts in some popular Linux distributions can be done in GUI just like M\$ Win*, so I attempted to change my default font on Vim, and a picture is worth a thousand words.

The following command from Vim Tips Wikia will do: :set guifont=[font-name]:h[font-size]. (Escape the whitespace character with a backslash, i.e. use \  to represent a whitespace.)
