The default SciTE that goes with AutoIt installation uses shabby little font and it's hurting my eyes.

I tried getting the full SciTE version and it still doesn't have any font customization.

Is there an AutoIt compatible IDE that allows for custom code font?

SciTE has font customization. Go to Options menu and Open Global Options File. It should open SciTEGlobal.properties file. Now look for this and change to whatever you want:

if PLAT_WIN
font.base=font:Verdana,size:9.4
font.small=font:Verdana,size:8
font.comment=font:Georgia,size:10.1
font.code.comment.box=$(font.comment)
font.code.comment.line=$(font.comment)
font.code.comment.doc=$(font.comment)
font.code.comment.nested=$(font.comment)
font.text=font:Times New Roman,size:11
font.text.comment=font:Verdana,size:9
font.embedded.base=font:Verdana,size:9
font.embedded.comment=font:Comic Sans MS,size:8
font.monospace=font:Consolas,size:8.9
font.vbs=font:Lucida Sans Unicode,size:10

Change and press Ctrl+S. You will see the changes in real time.

Font name can contain spaces. Here is my setup:

font.base=font:DejaVu Sans Mono,size:10

Note that changing global options might require to run SciTE as administrator on Windows Vista and newer. Otherwise, you may copy the modified lines in the user options file.
