The latest update to the Adafruit_GFX Arduino library now includes support for proportionally-spaced bitmap fonts of various sizes and styles. Nearly all our displays that work with GFX (for example, any of the OLED displays, or the 2.8″ TFT shown here) gain this new feature.
If you’re using a recent version of the Arduino IDE you can upgrade via the Library Manager, else install manually after downloading from GitHub.
A new page has been added to the GFX guide on the Adafruit Learning System, showing how to use these new fonts in your Arduino sketches, and how to convert additional vector fonts you may already have to a GFX-compatible format.
