Weirdly, it looks like Microsoft has made something I like.
"Microsoft Has Built a Font for the Command Line"
@AAMfP @clacke @mike Yeah, I know. Otherwise the end #language would kindly tell the user to gtfo with #syntax errors :D The question is about #selecting from the #editor though :) What happens if I Ctrl+C the #ligatute symbol? Can I even select only a part of it such as ">" from ">="? What will be in the #clipboard #buffer? 🤔
Yes, you can select part of the ligature text, as if it was the normal characters, like it is. If you select what you see as ≥ and past it somewhere else with a font without ligatures, you have >=. When moving with the cursor through ≥ you have to click your arrow button twice: > and =.

Give it a try. I'm back to GNU Unifont for IDEs and text editors (and GNU FreeFont for other things) only because of the license. But I felt at home even with Fira Code: the first fifteen minutes spent on trying all ligatures in IntelliJ IDEA 😅 then I got back to work and the feeling of the font and its ligatures was good anyway. I've used it for about one year.
