Spacing change.

Hi there!

I'm working on a 120 page catalogue at the moment. Now, the client asked me to replace one of their house fonts (containing all their icons and numbers etc) with a newer version. Unfortunately all the spaces (as in hit the spacebar spaces) have changed. I was wondering if this might be a problem re-exporting the fonts as otf or did someone manually change the space?

Hope this makes sense.

It's more likely that someone didn't change the default space width, which is normally 500 em units. As a rule, I normally set my space width to match that of an uppercase /I/ with a little extra added...

Thanks Oldnick
Just to clarify (as I don't know how a font is built), the default space is its own character when you create a font? Or is it defined in the settings of the font file?

Thanks for your help

Yes, it is a own character with a determined width.
