Notepad++ and line height (leading)


Quick note to self: If you set your Notepad++ fonts to smaller sizes (say 8 points) the editor still seems to have really big line-heights which leaves lots of white space. To decrease the line-height and minimize the white space, go to the Settings -> Style Configurator and under Global Styles, select the “Brace highlight style” and set it to a smaller font size. By default it is set at 12 points, which is too much for smaller fonts.

    I spent a whole day without finding it. Now at last I can use Notepad++ at 8 point.
