How do I change the font of the sidebar


This has probably already been wandered but I searched high and low in the Custom CSS post’s for it and could not find it. I would like to change the font of the file explorer sidebar to a MONO font but I can’t find a specifiek class or CSS example to do it. The reasoning is quite simpel. I prefix all my notes with the ZETTLKAST plugin but the date string does not line up all the time in the file explorer.

I would like this text to have another font:


I have the same question. I name my folders with number as prefix (i.e. 100, 200 …). The default font on sidebar (file explorer) is not fixed width hence all folder names cannot be lined up.

Found this thread through Google as I wanted to do was change the font size of the text in the sidebar.

Using the web inspector (Ctrl+Shift+I on Windows/Linux or Cmd+Opt+I on macOS) I was able to identify the classes to let me change it. Adding a css rule to a custom css snippet to target the following classes worked for me, and the font family can be changed as well. e.g.

.nav-file-title, .nav-folder-title {
    font-size: 11px;
    font-family: consolas;
