Text formatting with SpriteFont

May 22, 2014 at 5:05 PM
I want to draw blocks of text into local rectangles on the screen. Does SpriteFont support line-wrapping and text-alignment properties? How can achieve this?

You could implement your own system, but you should consider just using DirectWrite* for sophisticated font output...

Note DirectWrite is not supported for Xbox One XDK and Windows phone 8.0
