    Hi,

    tiny update commited, please re-download from first post.

    TGA texture save is here ( to store alpha ), the most visible change is option to choose color-to-color fade for font.
    Hope you will like it.

    Thanks Petr, can't wait to try it out this weekend! It is really nice. Thanks Petr, the going between colors is a super addition!!

    When you have time maybe color left to right might be neat option or 45 degrees if possible. Not all at the same time, but one from an option.
    up/down or left/right or diagonal left/right.

    I can't think of anything else really. Thanks this is fun to play with and I am sure will add lots to projects!

    Thanks,

    I will relax now a bit but I think it should be practicable.
    I am just not sure if it will not strike eyes too much to have diagonal or left-right fades, but I will try.


    Thanks,
    Petr

    No rush, just to make it complete it would be nice if doable. This is more than I ever hoped for already, so thanks!

    Hi Mike,

    both requests a bit tricky, but both on the wishlist and in process.
    I think outlines could be done first, will have a look at it!

    Bye,

    Mike,

    I am working on it

    In the meanwhile, you can see improvement in handling of color fading on attached picture.
    The upper line is how it will look in new version once it will be out, the lower one how does it look in current release.

    The new one maintains antialiasing of characters, which results in much smoother and font shape accurate results.

    Big issue is doing outlines plus fadeout, it has some artifacts I strongly dislike so there is still lot of work. So second picture shows outlines, but with single color body.


    Bye,
    Petr
