putty does support it well, so I change to putty.
Yeh, xshell is more powerful, but and the font appearance is important for the coding experience and thus is important for being productive. How could xshell not support it¿

Program Ver. : Xshell 4

I have tested the font inconsolata with Xshell 4 and the result was seamless.

Please try upgrading your Xshell to the latest by going to Help > Check for updates.

If the problem persists, please let us know the following information:
1. Remote server name and version
2. Windows version and language
3. Connection protocol type
4. Result of echo $LANG
5. Steps to reproduce the problem
6. Screenshot of the problem

When I use the inconsolata font, I could not change the font size, it is fixed on 24.
My local OS is Window 7, remote OS is linux

Version: Xshell 4

Try downloading the font again from a different source. Some font file does not include various font sizes. Make sure you are installing the font that includes all font sizes.

OTF font is not fully supported in Xshell yet. Please try using the attached inconsolata.ttf file instead.

Thanks your reply.
But I thought the otf font looks more comfortable.

I agree with you. We will support otf fonts in the next major version.
