JSUI: font styles, and doubleantialiasing

July 11, 2006 | 5:33 pm

A couple of issues from deep in my JSUI bunker:

i) Can I have a Sketch method for changing font style (regular, bold,
italic etc.) as well as font face and size?

ii) I noticed that, when I’m rendering text, it generally comes out
rather fuzzy compared to what I’d see in another application. When I
turn off fsaa in a Sketch, the characters look fine – and look
antialiased. So I’m wondering whether a Sketch with fsaa=1 is
actually antialiasing text *twice* (once from the text renderer, and
once via fsaa)? If so, is there a workround? (An obvious plan would
be to create a non-fsaa subsketch for text and copypixels() it to the
main Sketch.)
