Print a Vertical Text on GL

Hi Guys,

I am trying to print a vertical text on the screen.
I tried to override the Textprinter class but failed.

Any suggestions or code snippet?

Thanks much,

This is not possible with the current implementation, but it's being worked on in the "text" branch.

Thanks Fiddler.

I am really waiting for the new release with the enhanced text function.
Do you have any eta on that?

Thanks for the hard work, man.

No eta, sorry. The heavy lifting is done, but polish is taking more time than expected.

What's left to implement:

  1. Check whether resolution independent text is readable.
  2. Fix a bug that causes glyphs to disappear.
  3. Implement GL1.1 compatibility (needs 1.2 right now).
  4. Enable Vertical and RightToLeft layout modes.
  5. Some minor API modifications.
  6. Documentation.
