This package is used to scale up text to a desired size. Works by
deriving a new scale factor for the current font, and getting \TeX\ to
reset the text. See the commented source for usage.

Install by running \TeX\ on textfit.ins and place `textfit.sty'
where \LaTeX\ can find it.

textfit – Fit text to a de­sired size

Pack­age to fit text to a given width or height by scal­ing the font. For ex­am­ple: \scale­towidth{3in}{This}. (The job is done by cal­cu­lat­ing a mag­step and ap­ply­ing it to the cur­rent font; thus “This” will be very tall, as well as very wide; to scale in just one di­men­sion, use the fa­cil­i­ties of the graph­icx pack­age.)
