I also got my scalable text working much better today. Loads much faster with using less resources :)

After finally getting my computer working again I did a bit more work on the scale-able text putter.

I now have a full character set of 94 symbols from ASCII table 32 to 126 see the demo https://youtu.be/FBLlRWRZsyc

Today when I made by own font on my windows PC to save on the ESP board I saved it to the file name "font.dat" and placed it in a low directory on my PC where I send my files to the the ESP board. This file name "font.dat" causes any windows program including file explorer to crash when entering the directory tree that the "font.dat" was in. I couldn't even delete it. I took me all day to work it out thinking my hard drive had crashed. Lesson learnt never ever name a file "font.dat" on a windows computer :9

I have added the basic scale-able text putter to a branch of the github. Same as the image putter it is juts at beginning stage and still has lots of development still to do.

I have added the scale-able text placer and remover to the master branch. You can choose the foreground and background colour of the text as well as the scale size. There is also a text remover so when you place text ontop of a back ground image you can remove the text and restore the backgound image that was behind the text.
