As you can see there is a huge waste of space on the left side of the line number section.

When I increase the font size the padding even increases and does not decrease when I decrease the font size back.

I am using the most recent version of spacemacs and the tsdh-light theme.

    How about using the built-in (C code base) line numbering mechanism that comes with Emacs 26+? Any line numbers to the left of the fringe are generated by Lisp code such as linum.el or nlinum.el, which have been deprecated in favor of the line numbers that are built-in to the C code base as of Emacs 26 -- the line numbers are to the right of the fringe in such a case and the left margin area is reserved for other usages. – lawlist Jun 13 '19 at 15:19
