best fit result

As you may noticed Unity Text Best fit option doesn’t work for bitmap fonts

unity ui.text built in best fit option

I’m glad to announce that new version of Bitmap font tools now contains BitmapText component that allows you to enable Best fit for any bitmap font in Unity.

Component settings look the same as original UI.Text

Here is how it look in action

Bitmap font tools - Best fit for different screen size

And another one example

And yes, component works in Editor mode too 🙂
