Hi,

Should /drawtext -i draws the inverse text or the italic?

Code:
//window -p @a | drawtext -ri @a 255 tahoma 50 5 5 Test

Note that the i-switch is not documented in the help file.
As you note, it is used for various other draw commands for 'inverse'.
However, for /drawtext, which uses a font, I would argue that -i ia somewhat expected to mean italics.

Normally, if a command is part of a series of commands, an undocumented switch usually means the same thing as what it meant for the previous command on the same help page. And that would be the /drawdot command that says -i is inverse. There is already a -p switch that lets you italicize (or use other control codes) in the text, so I think -i should be inverse.

Indeed, and all /draw* commands but /drawdot say:
Quote:
The remaining switches are the same as those in /drawdot.
-i is inverse.

Well,

I made a try on oldier mIRC...
On /drawtext at 6.17 version, don't have the -i switch on /drawtext, so it's not a bug... But this can be very usefull if implemented laugh

-i for inverse

-I for itaic ou second switch;
+ibu for italic, bold, underline

Implementing -i on /drawtext would be cool, it has been suggested in the past.
You can already do bold/italic/etc using /drawtext -p.
