ofTrueType slow?

Hey everyone, i’m using OF 9.8 on a raspberry pi 3.

I’m trying to draw a grid of letters, about 40 x 20 using ofTrueType.drawString() and my program is slowing down for about 5fps?

I’m using the verdana.ttf font from the font examples folder.

Is this normal for the raspberry pi?

Probably. The RPi is pretty slow. You’d be better off making them into textures I think…or do you need it to be dynamic?

Can you post some code?
