Is there any chance to have font sizes between 16 and 24 in the font generator?
Or we could set *any* custom size in a text box instead of the combo box?
I second this. The jump between 16 and 24 is too large.
The first one is about conversion "strength" - how dark/light the original font gets converted... On the picture you can see the same "Arial" font converted with strength set to 50/150/210/254.
On the second picture you can see "Times New Roman" font converted at different sizes (as I remember 10/12/13 - but not too sure about it anymore).
And the final pic is how it looks in the fonts list of the Nextion Editor... as you can see the font sizes differ in width, but the height go up in multiples of 8.
Looks neat isn't it? Now how it looks in a text component:
Okay. Looks alike I was able to solve the issue. I can convert any text into a font:
The upper line is the font I made, the lower is the font included in one of the examples (12223.zi)
Here is a screenshot of the application I made:
On the top I can select the font, the size, boldness, and set the darkness (with the slider). If any setting is changed the white/black box will show how it will look on screen. Of course the sample is _not_ fixed width as it will be in Nextion Editor.
At the lower part I can set the internal font name stored within the font file and with "singularity generator" the sample text will be converted into a special font which contains only one character (a space) which will display the full text. So load into editor, add a text component, select font number and for "txt" type in a single space (may need to adjust xcen/ycen aswell).
If anyone feels like experimenting with it I attached the program (and Delphi source code) to the message. The source code is a chaos but it's open for improvement...
>> "I think variable font width is _not_ on the "to do" list of ITEAD"
really, do you have any more information than we do? ;-)
That would be really not good... :-(
>>"...but if anyone interested I made an unicode version of the program.
>> Should I upload this version?"
yes, I would definitely be interested
and I would use it as well in a project.
