Comments on: R2 Text Faces, Fonts, and Paragraphs
I was writing some code today that needed specifics of fonts and paragraphs, such as making the first line of a paragraph indented. I googled the keywords, but it wasn't so obvious. Knowing that we handle this well, even in R2, I kept searching.
The doc is REBOL/View Graphics - Face Contents.
Sometimes you just need to give Google a kick in the pants.
Carl, I have no idea where things are up to in this area but I spent many years as a typographer.
Could I suggest that paragraph padding control (space specially below and above paragraphs) is very important.
Likewise space around, that leaves room for first line hanging indents.
Lastly justification is a necessity.
A good deal of text layout can be achieved with just these functions, and without it the text will always look chunky and computerized.
Read the referred document with care -- looks like hanging indents are well taken care of.|
