I don't see a built-in way to use a font glyph as an image.
In my case, if I want to take the Playdate "A" button glyph and apply a blur or alpha to it, what's the simplest way to do that within the SDK? I know that all font characters are bitmaps, but do we have access to them anywhere as actual images, in the same way a playdate.graphics.image() works?
I briefly (maybe absurdly) tried to set drawText to a variable and work with it like that, which obviously doesn't work.
Sorry if this isn't totally clear, I feel like I'm just missing something !
