The fontPitch property defines the character font type as fixed or variable when the default font is used, though it is recommended that you use styles to define font types.

By default, most front ends use variable width character fonts, but in some cases you might need to use a fixed font.

When using FIXED, you force the characters to have a fixed size.

When using VARIABLE, you allow the characters to have a variable size.

For additional information, see the FONTPITCH attribute topic in the Genero Business Development Language User Guide.
