    How did you get this pixel-perfection? Have you disabled font smoothing on OS-level? Or there's a way to disable it just in VS Code? I'm using Windows 10 and wasn't able to get there without disabling it on OS-level which affects a lot of other apps that can't be configured with proper font and thus look ugly. – Ilya Denisov May 31 '18 at 10:00

All I needed was to escape fontFamily value:

"editor.fontFamily": "Terminus \\(TTF\\)",
"editor.fontSize": 16,
  • If using the Windows version of the font, use "editor.fontFamily": "Terminus \\(TTF\\) for Windows", – Florian Castellane Nov 1 '18 at 5:50

The answer of @broadband and the comment by @FlorianCastellane both didn't work for me using VSCode 1.30 and later.

I have found out that font names can be written within single quotes which in the end enabled Terminus for me.

"editor.fontFamily" : "'Terminus (TTF) for Windows', Consolas"
