Type Method

userFixedPitchFont(ofSize:)

Returns the font used by default for documents and other text under the user’s control (that is, text whose font the user can normally change), when that font should be fixed-pitch, in the specified size.

Declaration

class func userFixedPitchFont(ofSize fontSize: CGFloat) -> NSFont?

Parameters

fontSize

The size in points to which the font is scaled.

Return Value

A font object of the specified size.

Discussion

If fontSize is 0 or negative, returns the fixed-pitch font at the default size.

The system does not guarantee that all the glyphs in a fixed-pitch font are the same width. For example, certain Japanese fonts are dual-pitch, and other fonts may have nonspacing marks that can affect the display of other glyphs.
