Krita text tool questions 

How do I change the font units to pixels? I work a lot with pixel fonts and point sizes don't play nicely with those.

How do I change the way fonts are rasterized? Sometimes I really don't want anti-aliasing (e.g. for pixel art fonts, and for text on things I plan to print).

The 4.4 documentation doesn't mention either feature, so I guess it's impossible?

While looking these up, I saw that text tool improvements are planned for 5.0, exciting!

@eishiya you have to go into the SVG tab and change the PT to PX. As for the rest, unfortunately our vector layers live in a different coordinate system from the main raster layers, and while different rendering styles is not impossible technologically, it might be hard to sus out how the wires should go.

@eishiya Yeah, uh, part of the problem is that our vector layers have a weird way of handling DPI, which @tiar was looking at, so pixel size is also not terribly useful.

@Wolthera I see, thanks for the info.

On a related note, thank you for your consistent helpfulness! Krita isn't in a place yet where I can make it my main art software, but thanks to you I can wait <3
