How do I increase font size properly?

Hi. I’m having some issues when using Unity’s new UI system. I can’t make the font size larger than 26. When I try to, the text just disappears. I’ve tried this with multiple fonts. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

Either play with width and height properties of GameObject as specified by other answers. Or set both horizontal or vertical properties to overflow.58302-screen-shot-2015-11-18-at-105812-am.png

Actually you are trying to increase font size without change width and height.So its clipped.Solution is increase width and height from Rect Transform of Text.Mark right answer if it works for you.

The problem is your text box size is not big enough to hold a bigger font.Simply expand your text area and you can see your font.


@Shivanshu and @SeasiaInfotechind are right. You should expand your text area which can be done by changing the width and height of rect transform.

One more way you can increase the font size is by changing the Horizontal Overflow and Vertical Overflow to Overflow. Now increasing the font size will make the text out of the rect transform.
