    It suddenly dawned on 'ol lead-head here that I was using:

    col * FontWidth

    instead of

    col + fontWidth

    Duhhhhh.....

    Mel,

    I think you need to use GRAPHIC TEXT SIZE. "This allows you to easily calculate the appropriate print position, particularly when using a proportional font."

    ====================================================
    "Any man who is under 30 and not a liberal,
    has not heart;
    and any man who over 30, and is not a conservative,
    has no brains."

    ====================================================

    started a topic Question on Graphic Set Position.

    Question on Graphic Set Position.

    Or maybe it's just a case of brain-lock.

    In a pure graphics environment, I need to place text on the graphic screen not unlike LOCATE row, col.

    As I understand it, Graphic Set Pos "locates" in pixels.

    The question is: How can I use font size to calculate where to locate text so as not to squeeze the text too tightly or space too far apart?

    TIA

    BTW: I did look for this but maybe I used the wrong search terms.
Working...
