Bitmap draw - text

I'm trying to draw some text onto a bitmap using the DrawT and Text primitives. The problem is the grid step input of the DrawT only accepts one number, not the full grid coordinate, so the text that's drawn onto the bitmap moves diagonally from top left to bottom right of the bitmap when I increase the float in the grid step input. And a really strange thing is that the text increases in size the further down it gets.

Please tell me what I'm doing wrong. :oops:

I think the grid step input in effect acts as a zoom for the view, so leave the grid step blank for no zooming.

Just alter the area on the text primitive to place the text where you want it.

Cheers ;)

That did the trick! 8-) Thank you very much.

Another thing, I have a 1920x1080 frontpanel, for some reason I can't get my bitmap (video feed) to cover the whole frontpanel. I can increase the bitmap module size till it's almost there, then suddenly it's starts cropping the bitmap. Is there a size limit for bitmaps I'm not aware of? Please advice. :)

Never mind, I'm being stupid again. There was a frame around the bitmap I didn't see that was to small.
