This enables it to render words much quicker as it avoids things like
space calculations and kerning calculation.

It is useful for GL in particular, although software engines do get

Generally it is recommended you enable one or both of word or metric caching,
depending on your engine use. If you are only using software, enable word
caching (and neon on arm if you can), for GL, turn on metric caching.
A simple solution is enable both, and let the engine sort it out at run time.
If you have any issues with metric caching, please report them to either
