Is character spacing definable for generated text?

Hi all,

I have tried searching the archives and it would appear not without seperating and appending each individual letter :(

I hope I have missed something. Can anyone say for sure?

Thanks,

No, I don't believe that is an option which can be set.

Determining Font Metrics:

Perl script for automatically placing text characters into an image with constant character spacing:

You could probably modify that to do what you want. . .

Post back here if you come up with something useful!
