Bit-mapped font

Bit-mapped font,

Definition of Bit-mapped font:

  1. Software font (such as a truetype font) in which each character is formed by a matrix composed of bit-mapped dots. Unlike the outline-fonts, each bit-mapped font has to be loaded as a separate file, and usually cannot be enlarged or reduced without producing jagged edges (aliasing).
