Why is loading Font so slow? [PLEASE HELP]

Hi, I’m developing an iOS application with OF.

Since my application uses various fonts, It should load different types of fonts multiple times.

But when testing on my iPad2, I found out loading font 20 times takes about 5 seconds which I think is really slow.

I’m using ofTrueTypeFont’s loadFont to do this job (which I think is the only way)

Is there any way to load fonts faster?

you should probably load the fonts at the beginning with any other resources while showing a loading screen.
