I wanted my text to scale with my NSTextView, so I tried to pull it off with the following methods. I came fairly close, and I think the resulting issues may be with the NSScrollView. If anyone has any suggestions on how to improve or increase the accuracy, it would be very much apreciated.

The more I try, the more ways I approach this, the more miserable I become. I don’t think it is possible. Ill have to find another way to get similiar results. Chsnging monitor resolution wouldnt work either.

-(void)scaleText:(NSTextView *)txtView width:(float)width height:(float)height {

int count = txtView string] length];

int i;

[[NSMutableDictionary *at;

NSSize original;

NSSize desired;

NSRange range;

at = [[NSMutableDictionary alloc] init];

for (i=0; i < count; i++) {

[at setDictionary: txtView textStorage] attributesAtIndex:i effectiveRange:&range;

   original = [txtView textStorage] attributedSubstringFromRange:range] size];
    desired = [[NSMakeSize(original.width*width,original.height*height);

txtView textStorage] beginEditing];

[[txtView textStorage] addAttribute:@”[[NSFont” value:[[NSFontManager sharedFontManager] convertFont: [at objectForKey:@”NSFont”] toSize: [self pointSizeForString:txtView textStorage] attributedSubstringFromRange:range] convertToSize:desired] ] range:range];

[[txtView textStorage] endEditing];

i = range.location + range.length; }


-(float)pointSizeForString:([[NSMutableAttributedString *)string convertToSize:(NSSize)newSize { NSSize originalSize;

NSSize testSize;

NSMutableDictionary *at;

at = [[NSMutableDictionary alloc] init];

[at setDictionary: [string attributesAtIndex:0 effectiveRange:nil]];

float originalPoint =at objectForKey:@”[[NSFont”] pointSize];

float xFactor;

float yFactor;

originalSize = [string size];

[string addAttribute:@”NSFont” value:[[NSFontManager sharedFontManager] convertFont: [at objectForKey:@”NSFont”] toSize: originalPoint+1 ] range:NSMakeRange(0,[string length])];

testSize = string string] sizeWithAttributes:[string attributesAtIndex:0 effectiveRange:nil;

xFactor = testSize.width - originalSize.width;

yFactor = testSize.height - originalSize.height;

[at release];

return (newSize.height/yFactor)*yFactor;
