iOS default font


#1

On iOS, JUCE picks ‘Helvetica’ as the default font. It seems it was the system font up to iOS 9, but now it is ‘Helvetica Neue’ that is the system font. It’s not a big deal, but I find that the ‘Helvetica’ is not as well vertically alligned as the ‘Helvetica Neue’ when used in juce. For example in the JUCE DemoRunner, widgets demo, ‘Toolbars’ tab, the ‘Toolbar ComboBox item 1’ text is stuck to the upper border of combobox, it would be nicer if drawn one or two pixels lower. If I call

Desktop::getInstance().getDefaultLookAndFeel().setDefaultSansSerifTypefaceName("Helvetica Neue");

at the beginning of the demo app , the various labels seem nicer to me.

Shouldn’t it be San Francisco now?

I’m not seeing it in the list of fonts displayed in the DemoRunner, maybe it has a different name ?
