If you pass it flags, it will do some automatic sizing of numbers to "make things fit" within your given limits. The returned string should then "fit" within the space you specified to best extent possible.

However, at the moment TEXTOUT does not support passing those flags in. The net result is that at this time you will not be able to print anything in a user program using the italic, bold, or monospaced font.

Improvements to the text printing is definitely on the list of enhancements, but as always I cannot say when or if it will be implemented.

I was trying to figure out how the formatting options of STRING worked, and found this old post.

Is the TEXTOUT / STRING interaction incorporated yet? I'm getting errors, so I'm guessing the answer is no. I would love more text formatting capability in my program than just the system small and large fonts provided by TEXTOUT.
