New sprite font is same to Text object.
If you won't create a new object, better don't use new sprite font.
Well all my fonts now use old Sprite Font, and I have them all over. If I delete it, and re-add with the new sprite font, I have a ton of work ahead of me. I'm wondering if I can open the C2 files, change the object type and be done with it, or if there are other implications.
I can't use text because, well text is too unpredictable across all platforms.
