Is there a way to draw line with automatic symbol selection? I mean so that editor picks appropriate symbols itself to make line look as good as it can be (auto select _-/|., etc.)

Really enjoyed this tool, used it to make a little ascii thing for my code!
wow super nice
That's a great idea to make this browser-based! I like how clean and simple this is, with a super easy selection of characters. That's really great!
I've recently played with some ASCII (and variants) tools like lvllvl.com (my favorite). I quite enjoyed the possibility to use specific fonts or tilesets and to set the background and foreground color per character.
Although ASCII is too limited for me, I'm thinking that a box (rectangle or filled) tool, as well as a line tool could be interesting to add. Just an idea!
Here's something I've done in lvllvl.com with a specific vector set, layers and a bit of Photoshop for the texture. Just to show you what I'm referring too when I'm speaking of custom fonts.
This by the way based on this open font: https://www.kreativekorp.com/software/fonts/ksquare.shtml with the added ability to rotate tiles.
Here's another use of the same tool for the background (not characters) with a specific 8x8 font
There are some interesting things on lvlllvl.com that I didn't think of. i also wanted to add animation capabilities.
Choosing and adding a font, I want to add in the next update,
but with geometric shapes, I still don’t know how best to do it, using different symbols, or only one selected one.
lvllvl is kind of crazy 😅 with so many options! As for shapes maybe you can start with a single character so that you can quickly draw something repetitive. Anyway, have fun with this new tool! 👍
