I just now upgraded to Catalina on Mac (10.15) and immediately ran into an odd font behavior: when I open a file with MacVim (8.1.1722 (157)), the letters with tails (g, y, p...) have their tails cut off at the base of the text (see screen shot). I can temporarily fix the problem by enlarging and then reducing the font, but that's annoying to have to do every time I open a file. The font is Menlo:Regular:11. I don't mind going to either 10 or 12, but I don't know how to make that a default.
So I have two questions: is this a Vim problem that is targeted for fixing? If not, how do I change the default font?
