    Hi,

    I have a custom font and every time I use glow, I get an issue like this, see those blocky mesh around characters?

    upload_2018-10-19_23-5-20.png

    Upper one is
    Offset: 0
    Inner: 0
    Outer: 1
    Power:1

    Below one is
    Offset: 0
    Inner: 0
    Outer: 0.95
    Power: 1

    However, depending on the resolution, below one also acts like the above one. Is there a solution for this? Wrong Font Asset Creation settings? Font is bad? Am I doomed?

    Thanks.

    That is because the ratio of sampling point size to padding is too small. Ie. You will need to increase the padding.

    See FAQ Question 2 and 11.

    Yup, that was padding. I increased it and it's perfect.
    The thing is, I swear I've read the FAQ. Sometimes my brain just takes a long walk around the neighbourhood...

    We have all been there before. Especially when I answer posts at 3:21 am while waiting for a new build ;)
