Displaying Text

I have a viewport which is setup with the glOrtho command and I have a series of lines drawn on the viewport,

for some reason I cannot put outlined fonts on the screen when I remove the glortho the text is displayed but then the perspective is messed up. I really need to have the viewport in glortho mode but with text, any ideas anyone ??


Hi ,
try disabling the depth buffer and then try.
