Strange "size" of generated BitmapFont

Hello,

 

somehow my cool subtitle font has a strange value for the "size" parameter:

 size=-24

and indeed, when I set the size at runtime to values like "32", it looks inverted (top-down).

I must use negative values like "-32" when I want to resize the font.

 

Any ideas where this comes from?

The 'info' block is just a little information on the original truetype font used to generate the bitmap font. This is normally not used while rendering the text. 

 

A negative size here reflects that the size is matching the cell height, rather than the character height.
