I tried switching to outline fonts instead of bitmap fonts for the purpose of having more control over the characters. (Such as centering the text). Outline fonts use the GLYPHMETRICSFLOAT structure to hold information about the character''s dimensions, widths, etc.. I''m using the example from the book: OpenGL Game Programming, chapter 11 I don''t understand how to change the font and font size. I try changing the font, that works, but not always. I try changing the size, and that doesn''t work at all. It always stays the same size, whether I input a size 10 or 24.
