Hm ... I thought this was fixed in the latest master with something like this:
// we load our font with contours (see the docs for more info on the args)
ofTtfSettings settings(OF_TTF_SANS, 50);
settings.contours = true;
settings.antialiased = true;
// Load the settings.
// we initialize a new particles system and wrap it in a shared pointer
// so that we don't have to worry about calling `delete`. Remember, if
// you use the keyword 'delete' you MUST be sure that the memory is freed
// via a `delete` OR make sure that mechanism (like a shared pointer) will
// call it for you.
particleSystem = std::shared_ptr<ParticleSystem>(new ParticleSystem());
// an init method for us.
// initialize it!
currentWord = 0;
// load our text using our mini text utilities class.
std::string rawText = TextUtilities::loadFile("Lorem.txt");
// strip puntuation
rawText = TextUtilities::stripPunctuation(rawText); // remove (some) punctuation
// finally, get our words
// words = TextUtilities::splitIntoWords(rawText);
// Add some other words.
But I'm not able to get it to work -- I'd suggest posting a question on the openFrameworks forum http://forum.openframeworks.cc
