I am trying to size Text to fit a box. I want the text to fit as closely as possible. For example I have the word "Super" and I want to fit it in a box 40 pixels X 60 pixels. What do I need to tweak in order to accomplish this. I have tried messig with the point size but that dosn't give the disired effect.
Apps like corel draw, arts and letters, openoffice, etc. do this sort of thing. I just thought that maybe someone had some experience with tweaking fonts. The fonts have to be tweaked in many different ways. Some situations will produce short fat letters and others will produce tall skinny letters. I realize that it may be impossible to get a perfect fit within the box but some reasonable estimate should be possible.
