How to Change MacOS High Sierra System Font to Lucida Grande

Wish to switch the macOS High Sierra System Font to Lucida Grande on your Mac? Jump over to this quick guide to get back your favorite system font.

Though I find San Francisco system font decent, I have always enjoyed using Lucida Grande more than any other system fonts on Mac. And I’m really glad to know that there is a tool developed by GitHub that allows you to change the macOS High Sierra System Font to Lucida Grande on your Mac.

Named as macOSLucidaGrande, the tool works reliably and easily lets you switch between San Francisco and Lucida Grande font, which existed before OS X Yosemite. As for functionality, it has a slightly larger spacing and is a bit thicker as compared to San Francisco font. Hence, your eyes may prefer the former. Wish to try out this tool? Make sure to back up your Mac just to remain on the safer side of the stream in case of any mishap before getting started!
