Fonts

Processing can display text in many fonts other than the default. Before you display text in a different typeface, you need to convert one of the fonts on your computer to the VLW format, which stores each letter as a small image. To do this, select Create Font from the Tools menu to open the dialog box (Figure 6-1). Specify the font you want to convert, as well as the size and whether you want it to be smooth (anti-aliased).

Note

Make the font size selection carefully by considering the following: create the font at the size you want to use it in your sketch (or larger), but keep in mind that larger sizes increase the font file size. Select the Characters option only if you’ll be using non-Roman characters like Japanese or Chinese text, because this also increases the file size significantly.
