Re: How about TextEdit?
Authored by: pascalpp on Feb 11, '03 12:00:02PM

you can use TextEdit certainly. But TextEdit doesn't allow you to turn anti-aliasing on and off like the Terminal does, and for some reason the font panel in TextEdit doesn't include the character spacing sliders that the Terminal does.

if you want to set multiple lines of type, you can open a command line text editor such as pico.

That said, I just noticed that Photoshop 7 has the ability to set aliased type (as well as anti-aliased) by setting the font smoothing to None. But if you don't own Photoshop, the Terminal is a decent alternative for this purpose.
