    Multi font size management.

    So I used a single 32pt font that was ~ 75k. Moving to multifont, to add a 72pt font increases the size to ~512k?!?

    This is using a limited set of characters, printable only, no ascii included.

    Is there a better way to support the iPad2 (the reason for the 72pt font) without increasing my font footprint 6x?!

    Hi, I've used multifont briefly and was hoping to learn more so I tried out what you've described. Just want to share my findings...

    Test01- Single font, Arial, size 32, printable only, no ascii, chars:0123456789abcdefg ~ package size 79k

    Test02- Single font, Arial, size 72, printable only, no ascii, chars:0123456789abcdefg ~ package size 194k

    Test03 - Multi font, Arial, size 32/72, printable only, no ascii, chars:0123456789abcdefg ~ package size 254k

    If you add the package size for Test01 and Test02 together, you'd pretty much get what is expected, which is roughly the size of Test03. The fonts are converted into texture pages, so bigger fonts means more pages are required.

    Test04 - Same as Test03, Texture Page Width 512, Texture Page Max height 512 ~ package size 444k

    Test05 - Same as Test03, Texture Page Width 128, Texture Page Max height 512 ~ package size 245k

    By adjusting the texture page widths and heights, you can get a little savings by packing the fonts with less wastage( empty texture space ). It's not a lot of savings however...
