In many text-processing applications, we would like shapes that expand (or shrink) in size to fit their textual content. We address how to efficiently compute the minimum size for such text shapes. A variant of this problem is to take a fixed shape and determine the maximal size font that will still allow the content to fit into it. Our approach is to model the problem as a constrained optimisation problem with a single variable that controls the geometry of the text shape. We use a variant of… CONTINUE READING
