Wondering if there is any mods of the DMD library (or subsidiary text library) to allow for static numeric text in portrait mode?

Cheers!

Kerl,

It is quite easy to display static characters that fill a single DMD in portrait mode. All you need to do is create a font and you can use the library as it is - no mods required. Have a look at this thread. It should give you enough info to get you going.
There is also another threads which explains how the fonts work which may also help. You will only need to create characters for those you want to display (0 to 9?) - not the entire ASCII set.
