  • Section: Oversize scaling

    By default, Glimmr Canvas-Based Drawing will only scale a canvas up to its original size, so that 1 unit in the canvas coordinate system equates to 1 pixel on the screen (i.e., a window scaling factor of 1.0000). This ensures high-quality display of image files, which generally do not look good when enlarged. However, if we do want the canvas to be scaled beyond its original size, we can set the "oversize scaling" property of the window to true:

            The graphics-window is a graphics g-window spawned by the main-window. Oversize scaling is true.

    This option can, of course, be changed during play if we want to temporarily upscale our canvas for some special effect.
