Spacing bettween characters

When creating a card game the Ten (10) seems to have a lot of space between the 1 & 0.
Is there a way to squish this space between the 1-&-0 ?

    What font and font size are you using. Using the default font and font size shows the 10 OK to me.

    don't know. maybe try making an image instead of using text, i don't think you can force it to squish together. well, maybe you could make a custom font. but heres doing it as an image.

    function setup() w,h = 70,70 tx={1,0} xx={25,45} yy={35,35} textImage = image(w,h) setContext(textImage) fill(100) noStroke() noSmooth() rect(0,0,w,h) tRedColor = 255 fill(tRedColor) font('Inconsolata') fontSize(70) text(tx[1], xx[1], yy[1]) text(tx[2], xx[2], yy[2]) setContext() --this for loop makes the text transparent pixels. local function f(x) for i = 1,w do for j = 1, h do r,g,b,a = x:get(i,j) if r==tRedColor then x:set(i,j,color(0,0)) --transparent pixels end end end end f(textImage) --comment this out if you want normal text. i just wanted to show off end function draw() --noSmooth() sprite(textImage,w/2,h/2,w,h) end

    I realize I did not set the font in set-up. I was fiddleing with the Print a random card program (to screen) that I got from the fourm. I see the number 10 had way to much space between the 1-&-0...I'LL get back to the drawing board...
