To Customize the gedit Text Editor Font

By default, the gedit application uses the default font settings that are specified in the Font preference tool to display the text in the gedit window components such as the menubar, toolbar, and application dialogs. However, you can customize the font that gedit uses to display the text editor window contents. To customize the font settings for the gedit window contents, perform the following steps:

  1. In the gedit application, choose Edit -> Preferences.

  2. In the Preferences dialog, select the Fonts & Colors category.

  3. Perform one of the following steps:

    • To use the default desktop font that is specified in the Font preference tool, select the Use default theme font option.

    • To specify a font, deselect the Use default theme font option, then click on the Font used by the editor button to display the font selector dialog.
