In the last week JetBrains Mono font was released. It got some attention and a couple of people asked whether we can have that in FileMaker as font for the script workspace and/or calculation dialog.

A couple of ligatures help to make code easier readable with minus and greater than drawing more like an arrow for example. See yourself in a calculation:

We noticed that you need to restart FileMaker in case you change font, but I think we’ll add a preferences for our preferences dialog to define that.

This feature is coming for next MBS Plugin version 10.1 one early March.
