Custom editor font looks too small

Godot Version

godot 4.2.2

Question

i tried to customise the font used in the code editor, but it looks way too small:

this is what it normally looks like:

the code font size setting doesnt change anything either.
if i zoom in the editor, the space between lines is still way too large.
a different pixel font also didnt work. how do i change the distance between lines?

From the windows main menu: Editor > Editor Settings > Text Editor > Appearance > Whitespace > Line Spacing (it’s in pixels, default value is 4)
