There is already a tool for that in the current development version. It is still not available on windows because it needs a new library (freetype) that must be added to the libpack. Once that is done, that feature will be available for windows too.

I'll keep this open as a reminder for us to add freetype to the win libpack...

Great! I'll wait for the the new libpack.

The libpacks include freetype now.
