Because the code looks better, neater and clearer. I use ligatures in VSC and I am a fan of them 🙂

Can you use ligatures as operators in the actual code?

I'm not very sure about ligatures, but I'm afraid they don't have fixed proportions.
I wouldn't think that non-fixed fonts are a good choice for code editors.

My brain would detect this as an error while reading the code. I always expect to see in the source code the characters I did type and not the characters the IDE "thinks" might look better.

As far as I know the editor control does not support ligatures 

It just handles, only in specific situations, so I asked if it could be switched on permanently.

I discovered it by accident, it only works if the text is a commentary and only if there is some unicode character pasted in the same line, here unicode ENVELOPE.

Try to work with JS in the VSC editor, you will quickly change your mind.
