I've been really impressed by the recent bout of Scratch text engines using pen that I've seen around over the last few months. I developed a text editor awhile back that needed freshening up, so I thought I could combine the two a go. I locate a suitable simple vector font (the Hershey Vector Font) via the power of google that was also easily converted and imported into scratch lists. The speed improvement from using pen over clones and stamping has allowed me to go much further this this text editor now. Just note that if you make the font too small then the projects may start to lag and miss key presses.

★ Change List
+ Added 4 new fonts
+ Double click region selection
+ Lag prevention + speed ups - this works real well!!!
+ Added Underline & Font colours
+ Fixed bugs with setting styles on new lines & within sentences
+ Dirty rectangle redraw (to save redrawing the whole screen)
+ Added Justify Style + Tabs
