Changing font size only for height or width

Changing font size only for height or width

(OP)
Hi,

Is it possible to resize a font (like scalefont command), but only for the height or for the width of the font.

For example :
10 for the width of the font
20 for the height of the font

Thanks !

RE: Changing font size only for height or width

/Helvetica-Bold findfont [37 0 0 57 0 0] makefont setfont

Sets the height and width of a font

RE: Changing font size only for height or width

Sorry forgot to add

'/Courier findfont 3 scalefont setfont' scales the font to a pitch of 3

using this line

'/Helvetica-Bold findfont [37 0 0 57 0 0] makefont setfont' scales the font to whatever you set the 37 and 57 value to

Hope that helps
