Fonts

From https://www.creativebloq.com/typography/free-typewriter-fonts-1131774:

Much like retro fonts, typewriter fonts are a popular choice to incorporate into vintage-style designs. Courier is probably the best known font of this type but there are many free fonts out there to choose from.

From https://www.overleaf.com/learn/latex/XeLaTeX:

Different elements in a LATEX document are formatted with different fonts, for example in a verbatim environment the text is displayed using a typewriter style.

\setmonofont{Courier New} Everithing that must be formatted with a Typewritter font in your document will use the Courier New font. This command has an extra optional parameter inside braces:

mactex

brew cask upgrade mactex:

already exists. You may want to remove it:
  rm '/usr/local/bin/dvipdf'

To force the link and overwrite all conflicting files:
  brew link --overwrite ghostscript

To list all files that would be deleted:
  brew link --overwrite --dry-run ghostscript

brew link --overwrite --dry-run ghostscript gives:

Would remove:
/usr/local/bin/gs -> /usr/local/bin/gs-noX11

/usr/local/bin/gs does not exist.
