I set bitstream vera sans mono font in R on win7, please see the attachment.

How can I set bitstream vera sans mono font in CMD on win7? Please see my font in cmd on win7, from the word "link", you will know it is not the bitstream vera sans mono font.

I have set

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\currentVersion\console\TrueTypeFont    

into bitstream vera sans mono, it doesn't work.


I just wanted to share how I managed to setup the Bitstream Vera Sans Mono, the fixed-width font in the Windows 8 command-line (it should be similar on Windows 7).


I got the font from here, the Bitstream Vera Sans Mono Roman version.

I installed it by clicking on the .ttf file and pressed Install.

Then I located it here:


Started regedit and located:

Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\currentVersion\console\TrueTypeFont    

The 0 and 00 names where already defined, so I added the 000 name, with the string value:

Bitstream Vera Sans Mono

First, I had an extra space in front of the font name, and that did not work.

After I restarted the computer, I visitied the command-line properties:

and found that the newly installed font was available.

Now the command line looks like this:

Hope this help.
