What is the regular way to create a StringMorph with a particular font size?

Hannes Hirzel
Hello

I am wondering how a short version of constructing a StringMorph with
a particular TextStyle looks like.

The version which is attached works fine.

The question is mainly

How do I replace

     (TextConstants at: #LiberationSans) fontArray at: 7

with something which directly refers to the point size?

And as a second question how do I get from the number of desired
screen pixels to the closest font size?

Regards
Hannes

P.S.

I had changed

 TTCFont pointSizes

  "The default sizes that are created when a TextStyle is created.
    You can add new sizes by the new-size feature."
        ^ #(9 12 15 24 36).

in my image _before_ importing a TrueType font.




TTCFont pointSizes

is now

pointSizes

        "The default sizes that are created when a TextStyle is created.  You
can add new sizes by the new-size feature."
        ^ #(9 12 15 24 36 48 60).


And the font loaded is LiberationSans

https://pagure.io/liberation-fonts

The Liberation Fonts are intended to be replacements
for the three most commonly used fonts on Microsoft systems:
- Times New Roman,
- Arial and
- Courier \ New.

With Cuis, if you have the font in the 'AdditionalFontData' directory,
maybe the following?

| w nam |
nam := 'LiberationSans'.
w := AbstractFont familyName: nam aroundPointSize: 10.
(StringMorph contents: 'Some text in "', nam, '" font.' font: w) openInHand.

I don't have your TrueType font, but the above works for the DejaVu Sans
Mono font. This example appears in Terse Guide.
