I posted something similar just recently.

DejaVu Sans Mono point size 14 looks a bit better. https://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/dejavu-sans-mono

I think the font size makes as much a difference as the font itself.

The default font certainly does feel off, whereas the font used in Visual Studio Code or Atom doesn't.

  // Controls the font size in pixels.
  "editor.fontSize": 14,


  // Controls the font family.
  "editor.fontFamily": "'Droid Sans Mono', 'Courier New', monospace, 'Droid Sans Fallback'",

Switching to JetBrains Runtime may provide better rendering: https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/articles/206544879.

FIXED !!!!!!
1. Download latest idea.
2. Copy jre directory from downloaded latest version to your existing idea directory.
3. Set IDEA_JDK in your .bash_profile (or .bashrc for example export IDEA_JDK=/home/username/idea-IU-(version), export PATH=$IDEA_JDK:$PATH)
4. Download and install Fira Code fonts (Fira Code Retina).

Enjoy!!!
