Change fonts and sizes on centered text

Change fonts and sizes on centered text

Working in postscript. I need to be able to change the font and/or size on a centered line and keep it centered.  For example: on a business card the name line might include the degree title "John Doe, MDS, MS, PhD (etc...).  If the name is 11pt and the degrees are say 8pt, how can I change that AND keep the line properly centered? I hope that makes sense. Any help is appreciated.

RE: Change fonts and sizes on centered text


Use command stringwidth to estimate the length of your text, and then calculate the x from left to have a centered text.

Do not forget the "pop" just after. (see in postscript cookbook)
