I have a strange problem with one of my fonts - descenders are clipping on Win / Publisher 2013 & Wordpad at least. I can't duplicate the problem by myself on any of my programs on Mac.
I've had some clipping issues sometimes before with fonts exceeding the UPM but now the strange thing is that the font gets clipped directly under baseline?!
Any idea what's this about?
Working on a typeface where the client wants to have 45 pts on all sides of the glyph basically. It's a monospaced Chinese font. I have the metrics set so 45 pts are on either side for side bearings, I have 45 pts added onto the cap height for the ascender, and 45 added to the baseline to get the descender. The client wants the highlighted text to go below the text 45 pts...but when I export, it won't highlight that increment. What am I doing wrong?
Here is the font info box:
Is there any font classification service (web page, app, book) that classifies fonts by x-height, ascender and descender lengths, stroke contrast, apertures and counters, besides the basic serif and sans-serif classifications? Also if if the font is made for heading, body, etc.
Although I once had college-level schooling in fontography, my skills are time-blunted. Please help me to locate the name of the ascender-/descender-modified font in the logotype. I am thankful for any help you can give.
Picture of label here.
Please help me to understand how UPM is related to ascenders and descenders. For example, look at Times New Roman (TTF) metrics, UPM = 2048 (see image below).
I used to believe that UPM = Ascender - Descender, but now I find that I was wrong. But what metrics expression must be equal to UPM? What plus what (or minus what) must give exactly 2048 in this example? I don’t see appropriate values at all. Help me to clarify, please.
Seems like there are some pretty merciless critics here, so give it to me straight. This is my own job of the extra R swoosh. Any suggestions?
