What are good Sans-Serif fonts for technical documentation (printed and from the monitor) where "I" (big i), "l" (small L), "1" (one), "!", "i", "j" look different and also other characters differ from each other?

  • This question is very broad. There are many, many fonts that fit this criteria (such as Source Sans Pro). Do you have specific needs? For example, are you putting in a lot of code snippets or math figures? What fonts have you tried and what didn't you like about them. As this question is written, it would only generate opinion answers. – Scribblemacher Oct 18 '18 at 13:29
