I use DejaVu Sans Mono in the editor, and also in the console of

was the main problem, had to install a later (beta?) version of
openscad to let me change that font.

While I have not implemented it for OpenSCAD, I use a free font called
Atkinson Hyperlegible which addresses character confusion effectively
while attempting to solve some accessibility issues as well.

a common typo I make is hitting the 's' instead of the 'a' and neither
fonts distinguish between the two at a small size. Comic sans is far
better in legibility, I've changed to that, until I can find/make it
mono spaced.
