Description gioppo 2007-10-18 08:04:14 UTC
The font properties of a textbox do not allow to set the spacing between 
If I have to generate a module with fields that have to respect a definite 
graphical layout (classical module where you have a given space for characters) 
I could use a Courier font (since is aviable on every PC around and is equally 
spaced) and adjusting the spacing I could manage to make each single character 
of a single textbox ending up in the exact position.
Could it be possible to add the feature from openoffice or is something tied to 
the widget of the operating system?
In that case could be possible to distribute a custom font with the document?
