Font with both negative value for kerning (-9) and spacing(-9) should be displayed with Multiview

Post by gdridi »

Hello,

I’m the author of Arabic Console available on os4depot.
I want Arabic text work with the graphics Text() function so I set negative value for kerning and spacing (i.e : -9 I used TypeFace program available on aminet) and it displays a sentence of Arabic word great with this Text() graphics (readjusting letter after letter the current displacement to the left).
But, sad news, multiview display only positive value.

Is it possible to enhance multiview when preparing the length of a sentence (to get absolute value instead of negative) perhaps TextLength() before using actual Text() ?

For me, there’s no need to change a lot to display right-to-left font (even if somebody says it’s a hack). Because I see AmigaOS always has followed KISS principle(s).

Best regards,
DGILLES - The ArabSCII guy
