Custom UILabel Fonts on the iPhone Simulator

- Posted in iOS by

Wasted a couple of hours debugging an issue with the use of a custom font on a UILabel; the text simply wouldn't show up on the iPhone Simulator.

No such problems with the (bold) system fonts of any size.

As it turned out, this is an issue (bug) with the iPhone Simulator; when running it on a device, the label is shown correctly.

Also note that there is a "fonts" app and an iOS fonts website that show all the fonts that are available on the iPhone or iPad.
