Description

The code editor should use a monospace font. This can be hacked into the source in the following file: wp-includes\js\tinymce\themes\advanced\css\editor_ui.css

.mceEditor { font-family: monospace; }

Why should the code editor use monospace font?

  • Milestone 2.4 deleted
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

-10 this would just look fugly.

A plugin could probably easily accomplish this.

Please reconsider this, that is, changing to monospace the font used in the two instances of the non-visual post editor:

  1. The HTML tab next to the visual editor
  1. The plain text area that you get if you untick "Use the visual editor when writing" in your profile

Why:

When the non-visual mode is selected, the reason is probably markup: either manually entering markup or checking the markup; a proportional font is not convenient for this.

btw, here is what I did to get a monospace font in the non-visual editor. In wp-admin/css/global.css, right under:

textarea, input, select {
    font: 13px Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    margin: 1px;
    padding: 3px;
}

I added:

textarea {
    font: monospace;
}
