UILabel outline correctly
« on: August 28, 2014, 10:18:11 AM »
Hi Aren,
I want to know when will be fixed the outline in the UILabels, right know it's just duplicating the current character and add some offset to them. So, if you want a thick outline starts creating empty spaces.

The real outline should be a stroke around the character.

Apparently the FreeType library already have this, I'm not sure.

Could you integrate this?

NGUI doesn't use FreeType. FreeType is only used at edit time to generate bitmaps. To do bold properly, you'd have to have both glyph faces -- regular and bold -- in the same atlas. Right now NGUI doesn't support more than one font per label, which is why it's done like that with duplicating text.
