I have been setting up my new terminal on both of my MacBooks Pro and I noticed that UTF-8 glyphs are way smaller on one of them. This holds true in every application and I can't find the setting that differs between the two laptops so I can get the big glyphs on both. Here are two pictures showing the difference: Big glyphs(how I would like them to be) Small glyphs

I thought it would be related to the locale variables but no: LANG="fr_FR.UTF-8" and LC_ALL="fr_FR.UTF-8".

Any help is welcome!

PS: I work on Mac OS Sierra

  • The encoding should be irrelevant, it's the font that matters. Same one on both machines? May 21, 2017 at 17:05
  • Font in the same in the example shown above but, as I said, it holds true for every application. Even in my web browser the alignment and size is not the same. (For instance fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/2b22/index.htm) May 21, 2017 at 18:29
  • In Character Viewer, look in the Font Variation pane for 2b22 and see if there is a difference in size among the fonts that have it. May 21, 2017 at 19:13
  • It does, there are 2 different sizes possible! But I don't get why it would be rendered differently across my 2 laptops... May 21, 2017 at 19:52
