Re: Re: Vector fonts
IMHO using wxFont would be a PITA... matching metrics and spacing between screen and plot would be really difficult (thing like hinting and similar stuff). IF we have a 'filled polygon' primitive in wx with a reasonable fill rule (i.e. winding, not odd/even), just feed the outline to it to draw on screen...

I don't see this as a problem.
If we can get a bit map, and we can, we can rasterize at the size
needed. This was your suggestion, but I am running with it a little
wxFont support can give us a bridge to any font, we do not have to baby
sit fonts anymore at that point.
