Wow! Sorry, I didn't know this. And how long this feature exists?

No Clover has no such possibility. Hope some day it will be.

The website is updated in 2012. So the variable width font feature existed at least 2 years.


Since chameleon is open source, maybe some programmers can import the feature into Clover someday?

No, variable width is possible by freetype (The FreeType Project) but this is very huge work to implement.

Chameleon uses constant width as well. It's hard to imaging that Chameleon is able to get over the difficulty.

There is nothing from Grub.


About existing fonts I may say they are drawn by different artist. First russian font created by dmdimon. The most significant contribution was made by Blackosx.

The best software is Adobe Photoshop.

Thanks for your information. But clearly Chameleon does have variable character width support. For example here is the screenshot:

I also found the font working principle from voodooprojects.org site: http://forum.voodoop...php?topic=388.0

Basically chameleon separate each character by a red dot, therefore it can have different width for each character. I wonder if Clover can do the same thing?

That's good to hear. But I can't find any exist font under Clover site that have varying width, nor any instruction how to create our own font.


It also seems Clover's source codes regarding to font are imported from GNU GRUB. So should I research on GNU site then?

- Selection box from real Boot Camp screen.

- Font adjustment



I did some research on fonts used by Clover. It seems Clover only recognizes fonts with fixed width, which I believe old Chameleon can do much better job.
