  • Section: Summary of the properties of bitmap-rendered strings

    This section presents a list of the properties associated with bitmap-rendered strings. These are more or less equivalent to the properties of bitmap elements. Properties which the extension uses internally, and should not be referred to by the author, are marked with a double asterisk (**). All bitmap-rendered strings also inherit the properties common to the g-element and rendered string kinds (see above for those properties).

        bit-size - the size, relative to the canvas, of each bit in the bitmaps of the associated font's letterforms. For example, a bit-size of 2 will be two units wide and two units high. The bit-size is subject to scaling both by the scaling factor (or x-scaling factor) of the rendered-string, and by the window scaling factor. Default value: 1

        dot-size** - the final display size of each bit in the bitmaps of the associated font's letterforms, measured in pixels as output on-screen. Default value: 1
