I'm trying to increase the font to larger than 100, but I'm having issues doing so.  I'm creating a timer, which I want to have a large font, but it seems as though once I get above 70, I start getting these blocks to appear and my text does not.  Anyone know the correct way of doing this?

timerText.font = [UIFont fontWithName:@"arial" size:80.0];

Which box? You mean these three dots in the end of the text? They look like a rectangle in the font you selected, but these are dots.

Make the label bigger. That will solve the problem. You see the dots when there is not enough room for the text.

You can change lineBreakMode in UILabel and it may simply truncate the text. You can set number of lines to 0 in UILabel and the text will appear in few lines. You can change adjustsFontSizeToFitWidth... Many things. But in your case looks like you need to make the label bigger.

That was odd that lineBreakMode allowed it to be displayed all on the one line.  Eitherway, thanks for the tip.  That worked.
