jit.gl.text2d and unicode


    Apr 01 2013 | 12:33 pm
    Hi!
    It seems to me that jit.gl.text2d does not display a large number of (existing) unicode characters. For instance, if I try to have the text "Sħe sat" displayed with font Georgia, the "ħ" letter (though existing: a simple message box displays it properly) is replaced by a square.
    Does anybody have a clue?
    Thanks, Daniele

      what kind of font do you use ? what os you are using ?
      not every unicode font has all characters build in. if you are on windows try the font Arial Unicode MS.

      As I originally wrote, I'm using Georgia font, but the issue is common to many other font. I'm on Mac OS X 10.6.8. I'm very sure that the font has the Unicode ħ character built in, cause I can see it in any other application (or directly using PopChar, for instance).

      (and moreover I can perfectly see it in a ordinary message box, whose font is set to Georgia...)

      hi may be post a patch ... How do you write the text to "jit.gl.text2d"? via matrix, via messages ?

      Hi matmat. Below you have an example, with text sent via messages. I suppose I can't send via matrix either, since all the examples I have found in the doc use char matrices (not enough for full unicode depth...)
      Any advice is really welcome...

      hi danieleghisi,
      seems that there is a bug in jit.gl.text2d. perhaps it is better to use jit.mgraphics.
      it seems to display your text correct.
      best, kugelschreiber
