I want to make an extremely large label (Filling 1/3 of the screen). But I can't seem to increase the size of the font any more than about 140. How am I supposed to make larger text? I tried to increase the X and Y scale of the label but the font remains the same size.
Originally I used the TextField class, but I decided to switch to the label class. Should I have stayed with the TextField class? It worked.
EDIT: I got the text to scale up by adjusting the scaleX and scaleY properties of textfield child of the label, but now the font has pretty blocky edges. I'm using the Myriad Pro font. How can I fix this?

this thread can probably help you with that:
it will let you resize the font to any size you want. good luck!

That's what I tried and it worked now, but now I have a jagged font..
EDIT: I tried Arial instead, since it wasn't jagged as a regular textField, and it's still jagged. Even with advanced anti-aliasing settings.
EDIT: The font is nice and smooth in the simulator, unlike in Windows. Hopefully this is how it will look on the actual PlayBook, otherwise it won't be nearly as aesthetically pleasing as I would have hoped.
