Does this count as an art generating script :^)

The reason why is the Windows 10 upgrade. I have yet to use this script!
jacob how do i use texter on your mod? did you have to make it more complicated by replacing ctrl - t with a help message?
Since this thread was necroed by The Jacob Himself, I feel safe posting here. I was wondering, with the possibility of updates breaking the script, if it would be worthwhile creating new fonts for it. There are certain things I like about it, particularly the use of separate font scripts. On the downside, I haven't had much luck getting it to do linespacing properly with a large font. It ignores my font's height parameters.
Because of that, I am at the same time creating a modification of jBot-42's Lua Text Generator, which may end up being my finished product. It accepts my dingbat fionts gracefully and does exactly what I want with less stress.
If anybody has any thoughts ~
My reason for sudden obsession with fonts is that it occurred to me that a Dingbats type of font would be useful for creating structures made of repeated motifs that might be used in different saves. Bridges, cranes, walls, lattices, decorative borders, etc. I am pleased with the results so far. Typing a brick wall is less tedious than pasting. It can reduce numbers of stamps, and saves time drawing small odd shapes.
Well, jacob, not everybody's a programmer. I have no clue how to use the command.
Has the interface API been rewritten yet? Sorry but I could not understand how to use the command.
+1 to everyone! And i cant use this script. NOTHING SHOWS UP
edit: jacob1 necroed so i feel safe agreed with Matera_The_Mad
edit: aww sad. but...maybe there will be another texter...and somebody will make it. i said enough
