Instance Property

fixedPitch

A Boolean value indicating whether all glyphs in the font have the same advancement.

Declaration

@property(getter=isFixedPitch, readonly) BOOL fixedPitch;

Discussion

The value of this property is YES when all glyphs have the same advancement or NO when they do not. Some Japanese fonts encoded with the scheme “EUC12-NJE-CFEncoding” return that they have the same advancement, but actually encode glyphs with one of two advancements, for historical compatibility. You may need to handle such fonts specially for some applications.
