Font scaling only appeared in the latest GLB v12.243, an update that most people are unaware of & one if I remember is not picked up by the update tool in GLB 12.096.

Yes, 12.096 doesn't detect it for some reason.  Looks like Gernot hasn't officially released it

Seems odd why the online help is updated for that command & latest version is what is downloaded from the main site. Basically anyone new to GLB will have a version newer than others already using GLB.

Im just got the txt format https://71squared.com/en/glyphdesigner using, which was a pretty simply format to support and dosent require very much work. Its seen its a excellent commercial software to create those bitmap font. Howover its Mac only. But only have tried the example project file to been tested with throught.

The Android Loading screen now has bigger animated squares since I installed GLBasic 12.243, more likely due to the font scale.

Still would be nice to change the Text or Icons as Spicypixel requested in topic http://www.glbasic.com/forum/index.php?topic=9602.0

That loading screen is completly skipped in android extras, which is why you need those assest check thing or use the Z alternative of the loading commands.

In next version I'm will property add a option to strings.xml, if you don't want to skip that screen...

you dont need all features AE supports. The most basic is its would fix the screen orientation, and its will rotate automatic to the other side, if you turns the device, and the annoying loading screen would been skipped. Rest is not required for using AE.

Im do later next week purchase the font editor, which seens very good bitmap font software, despite its a Mac only software. Im will property release the source in the code snippets later. But its cool glbasic now support scaling. Howover im would want to see it to support real TrueType support.
