So I'm trying to make a program (I might post it here if I ever follow through with it) and fit as much text as possible on screen. Initially, thought the smallest text was just the normal text and its lowercase counterpart, but just before giving up I noticed that you could put text in a fraction, reducing the size to a mere 5 pixels tall. Does anyone know if there's any way to utilize this feature in code or is it just possible in the home screen?
You can use Text( to draw small text on the graph screen.
I see. Is there any way to do something of the same effect in the home screen or would I be limited to the graph screen?
You could use exponents or fractions to display the text using the regular Disp or Output( commands.
Apparently neither of these use Mathprint.
The effect is pretty much limited to the graph screen, though it is possible access some of the small font characters directly and Output( them (e.g. the numbers used as subscripts for Y= equations).

My suggestion would be to use this for your big characters.

Code:
Text(-1,X,Y,"Text to Display"

And the Text( without the -1 for small characters.
