Why I can't pick the Font Family I want on App Code?

I use the wonderful coding font 'Source Code Pro' in Xcode... however when I try to use that font in AppCode I'm not able to select the Family of the font that I want to use (called 'Source Code Pro Light')

Yes, I use that font through all my code, here's how it looks in AppCode

(notice the overall boldness of the font)

Is there a way to fix this under AppCode? (can't select light version, nor any other font of the Source Code Pro family)

Please try removing all variations except Light using /Applications/Font Book.app.

Hey there,

While this could work I'm using source code pro accross other apps that do really support Font Families (iTerm and others).

So I can't really remove the rest of the fonts in the Family and this is not a feasible solution (at least not a solution that I expect from an App with a Price Tag and a reputation like AppCode)

Any other suggestions or I should just 'open a ticket'?

I've built a version of the font with modified font family name, please give it a try.

Thank you very much,

Worked as a charm. My guess is that we shouldn't need this sort of workaround to make it work though ;)
