I'm trying to change the font for the turtle graph.

def goto(x,y):
    turtle.up()
    turtle.goto(x,y)
    turtle.down

import turtle
turtle.tracer(False)
turtle.width(3)
goto(-270,270)
turtle.right(90)
turtle.forward(540)
turtle.left(90)
turtle.forward(540)
turtle.left(90)
turtle.forward(540)
turtle.left(90)
turtle.forward(540)
goto(50,50)[B]
turtle.write('testing')[/B]
turtle.tracer(True)

That's a box I created and I want to add text to it. I looked around the Python documentation but can't find any argument for it. I wan to increase the size of the text. Is there a way?

I tried turtle.write('testing',font=('arial',8,'normal')) but to no avail.

The easiest way to do this is to modify turtle.py (usually found in C:\Python25\Lib\lib-tk\turtle.py) by adding a method write_font() and saving the modified module as turtle1.py (in this case in C:\Python25\Lib\lib-tk\turtle1.py). Here is turtle1.py (click on "Toggle Plain Text", select, copy and paste into your editor, then save) ...

# LogoMation-like turtle graphics
# write_font() method added to class RawPen
# original C:\Python25\Lib\lib-tk\turtle.py
# saved as C:\Python25\Lib\lib-tk\turtle1.py

"""
Turtle graphics is a popular way for introducing programming to
kids. It was part of the original Logo programming language developed
by Wally Feurzeig and Seymour Papert in 1966.

Imagine a robotic turtle starting at (0, 0) in the x-y plane. Give it
the command turtle.forward(15), and it moves (on-screen!) 15 pixels in
the direction it is facing, drawing a line as it moves. Give it the
command turtle.left(25), and it rotates in-place 25 degrees clockwise.

By combining together these and similar commands, intricate shapes and
pictures can easily be drawn.

So the feature isn't implemented by default? It's a project and I doubt my professor has his files edited.

So the feature isn't implemented by default? It's a project and I doubt my professor has his files edited.

You are correct. Since turtle.py imports Tkinter you may be able to use the Tkinter canvas.create_text() function, but it would be harder to implement, since you have to get the matching canvas and location.
