I'm having an issue with ExtraBold weight, which is the last one in row I kerned for an font family.
Beside it, there is Light, Regular, SemiBold, Bold and ExtraBold.
All weights have same UPM, same values for ascender, descender, Caps height, x-height... everything is same in all weights from field Font Info > Metrics and Dimensions!
For some reason unknown to me (this happens the first time), ExtraBold is displayed like it's done in ~1500 UPM, bigger, with top part of glyphs cut off. While other weights look normally, as it should!
When I install ExtraBold and try it in Illustrator, Photoshop, Word... it matches with the rest of weights, so no any visual difference (in height, position or anything like that).
Does anyone know what might be the reason for this?
We found an rip-off of our "Oblik" in Bold weight.
At first it was disturbing to find out something like this, but then I'm now feeling a little empathy for this guy, for the reason he is young (judging by his photo and by his profile description). But this is not the way to build your design career or to go in public without having any responsibility for your acts.

You like Futura, I like Formata. You like Univers, I like Avenir. You like what I don't like and I like what you don't like. So, let's call the whole thing off! We call it not letting the little things that bug us take us down.
