I'm working on a layered font family and everything is great in InDesign, but the alignment is off by about 1 or 2 vertical points in Illustrator when I switch between styles. Does anyone know if this is normal?

I'm a little nervous to release a font that doesn't "line up" in all programs.

Does anyone know what is the font used here? TIA

Inspired by neutral slab serifs with an added twist, Slab Happy is a typographic system consisting of eight layerable fonts with infinite combinations. Slab Happy looks best when set in display sizes, but functions just as well at smaller point sizes.

The complete Slab Happy family consists of: Regular, Bold, Outline, 3D, Stitches, Fill, Shadow, and Crosshatch.

I'm designing a typeface family with three optical sizes (36pt, 72pt, and 144pt) and a few layerable weights per each optical size. I've been experimenting with how I can make each weight line up when layered on top of each other and I'm starting to pull my hair out.

I thought having the same width and left/right sidebearing info would be enough, but that's not the case. Since the weights aren't the same width (I have a regular weight and a 3D weight, for example), having the same metric info results in them not lining up.

I'm interested in layered fonts like History (Typotheque), I've looked on Myfonts with the chromatic tag and they all look very similar, even the H&FJ one isn't that interesting...
