I have the same question but don't want to resort to a text object model because I'm panning and zooming through hundreds of data values (numbers) that need to be rendered quickly if the user wants to see them.
What I want is similar to the approach suggested here:
new Arial(10.0).print("0.78", 100, 100);
without all the external libraries. Is there a way to do this with what comes with FB4?
