Symbolics 8.1.1 CLIM 1.1
I'm trying to scale a display but I'm having problems. I put a with-scaling
the code which draws the display. That properly scales lines and shapes but
it doesn't seem
to effect text. I realize that the text size doesn't scale but the text
placement doesn't seem
to scale either which is a problem. Here's an outline of what I'm doing
WRITE-STRING is defined not to be affected by the medium's transformation.
DRAW-TEXT[*] is defined to be affected by the transformation, but this is
not necessarily implemented on every platform. If you want to "scale" the
text size, use WITH-TEXT-SIZE and scale the point size appropriately.
(with-scaling (stream .9)
(loop over objects to display
in the present for the objects the code looks like
(with-drawing-options (stream :ink newink)
(with-drawing-options (stream :ink specific-ink) ;;this is here
because in the real
;; program the ink used is
;; dependent upon a parameter
(format stream "~a" string))))
the circles position is properly scaled but the text and its border doesn't
move no matter
what I set the scale value to. Am I missing something? Is there a cure?
By the way whats the status of the Symbolics CLIM 2.0?
It's being released with Genera 8.3, which is coming out in the spring.
If you are desperate, I can get a Beta copy to you, but it lacks amenities
such as proper documentation.
