Now I waver between Source Code Pro and Ubuntu Mono. Ubuntu Mono has everything I want in a writing font--except it's too narrow and therefore doesn't match the Courier size (old typewriter Pica.) Source Code Pro is the right size, but its hyphens/dashes are not as nicely distinct as Ubuntu Mono.
And the "r"s in IBM Plex Mono are just as crummy as the ones in iAWriter Duospaced.

Cat-vacuuming is quite an old term now -- I think I first came across on the old Usenet group misc.writing in the 90s but it's probably a lot older than that.

Courier Final Draft (from Final Draft)
Courier MM Screenwriter (from Movie Magic Screenwriter)
Courier Screenplay (from FadeIn)
VTScreenplay fonts - Remington, Oliver, Smith & Underwood (From Vintage Type Foundry)
You can use any of these fonts at 12-point, and your pagination will stay exactly the same.
