Re: Stretching a text to a certain width of height

I would like to know if it is possible to give an arbitrary width or
height and automatically compute the correct font size which fits to the
given constraint.

Presently, I increment the font size iteratively until the text width is
over the wanted width. But this workaround is very slow and unusable
when I do it on many text items. I guess there is a cleaner method to do

Using pangocairo, turn metrics-hinting off, then do the layout at a nominal size, take the extents, do a cairo_scale(), and draw again. Has worked fine for me.


Thank you for your help,
