Is there a way to change the font/text the user types with? I'd like to match up the user input with what I'm using in Font.Draw.

Not trivially; if you want that effect you'll have to write a bit of code to do it yourself. There's a very similar request in the Turing Help section recently; try looking there for it.

I did one in my blackjack program last year. It's not perfect, and I forgot some features but you can see how I went about doing it. There's some hackish code in my implementation but it works and not to shabbily.

Just so you have a starting point:
    Begin with an empty string
    Read one character at a time using hasch and getch or getchar (trivial difference)
    Modify the string, handling the special cases for enter and backspace
    Font.Draw the string


@Insectoid: I'm sure you had your reasons for doing so, but drawing one character at a time makes me cringe.

I think it was 'cause I didn't want to clear/update the screen and this way I could just draw a box over the old letters to 'erase' it.

is there a way of adding an entrance effect to Font.Draw?

If you mean things like drawing letters one at a time, easy. Just use a for loop and Font.Draw one letter of a string at a time.

interesting, but no. i meant like fade ins and text swirling into the center, blah, blah. that sort of animation

Yes, but you have to anime all the steps yourself. Similar advice applies -- use for-loops.

hey peoples. srry for reopening this thread after a while, but i have a quick question: how do i color SIMPLE output text. i.e if i put into turing:

code:
put "Hi how are you"



how would i color the "Hi how are you" part to be displayed in the color green upon output?

Is there a way to make the font bold or italic?

If I remember correctly, this is only possible via Font.Draw.
