I’ve just started the relational database curriculum, and upon opening the terminal, I found that the characters overlap. The rest of the interface seems to be fine, though. Is there some setting I need to change to fix it?
Here is an example of what it looks like:
This has some info you can try changing the font. I never heard back from the user if they tried it.
I want to know if anyone else has the same problem I do. The font for terminal looks awful and is making going through the challenges a little bit more difficult for me as they are hurting my eyes. Is there anything I can do locally to make it easier for me to work on the problems?

Thanks for the link. I’ve found that if I open the terminal and change
Terminal › Integrated: Font Size to anything, the text will be properly aligned; however, the issue returns any time I open a new terminal, and I have to repeat the process to fix it again.
It seems to be a known issue.

**Describe the bug**
Terminal font spacing is too narrow making the terminal un
Steps to reproduce the behavior:
1. Go to https://www.freecodecamp.org/learn/relational-database/
2. Select Mario Database from the course list
3. Click on 'Run with CodeAlly' button
4. When CodeRoad launches, open new terminal (I use Ctrl+` hotkey)
5. See issue
Expecting to see a clear and readable terminal font that is properly spaced.
**Desktop (please complete the following information):**
- OS: OS: Arch Linux (x86_64 Linux 5.15.63-1-lts)
- Browser: FireFox (104.0 64-bit)
This happened multiple times for me during the Boiler Plate course; somehow it seemed to resolve itself after a few days, but now I see the issue again on the Mario Database course. Presumably this will/can/has happened for other people on other courses.
If the text is highlighted the issue goes away:
However it is not desirable to have to highlight my terminal IO just to be able to read it.
Not sure why the editor preferences are not tied to the CodeAlly user account so it can keep the preferences between sessions. That seems like it would be a useful feature to have.
