FAQ: Why are my nerdfont symbols not displaying correctly?

The display of nerdfont can be affected by many factors, including terminal emulator, font type, font size, zoom, etc.

Personally, I use alacritty as terminal emulator, Fira Code iCursive Op as font type, font size is 12, 2x zoom on my surface book 2.

You can adjust it yourself and choose a configuration that suits you.

Btw, terminal emulators like alacritty support a featured that can adjust the offset, you may fix this problem through it.
