Font (with a capital F) will globally change the font settings, but because it’s a Bitmap property. The following scriptlet will show how the font properties can be used in a single method (draw_font) to make drawing fonts easier. #============================================================================== # ** Window_Base #============================================================================== class Window_Base < Window #------------------------------------------- # * Draw font # bold : Bold on/off # italic : Italic on/off #
