Hey,
that's the first time I have to write something into a forum, because I'm not able to find a solution.
... And I hope that it's the last time as well  XD.
I have a standard 16x2 LCD display (like this one https://www.adafruit.com/products/181 ... well actually it is the one i have  :) ).

I would like to use my own pixel font with this library, but I can't find the file where the standard font is located.
I know that i can set a certain amount of characters, but i want to replace the whole font.

So, please help me if you know where/how the font is saved inside the library.

Love steph :)

the font is in the LCD's rom so your not going to find a file for it

So the font is saved directly inside the display - Did I get you right?

You can do up to eight characters with your own font.  Check out 'LiquidCrystalCreateChar'.

That's what i meant by "I know that i can set a certain amount of characters, but i want to replace the whole font."
But thanks for the try.
It's just that I don't like the font and so I wanted to change it to fit my machine ;) ... But I guess I can live with that font as well :D
