Pardon me if I’m missing something obvious, but I’ve spent a few hours on this and haven’t managed to find a solution.
I’m working on building a windowing system on top of Lemur, and of course every window has got to have a close button. As a first prototype, my close button is denoted with the text label “X” in lieu of a proper icon. The trouble is that right now my close button looks something like this:
[X]. The text is very crowded against the sides of the button, so I’d like to force a little extra padding between the sides of the button and the text so that it looks more like this:
[ X ]. I can do that by sticking space characters onto the left/right of the X character, but this is rather crude and doesn’t give any kind of fine-grained control at all.
What’s the “right” way to do this in Lemur?
