New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I have a problem with the line gap of my font when using it on windows 7 with Wordpad (no problem on open office and on my mac).
I made a font family with 4 styles (regular, italic, bold and bold italic) and when I use it with Wordpad, I ended up with unconsistent linegap. Italic, bold & bold italic have the same line gap but regular has a larger one.
I use Fontlab to made the font and my settings in "Truetype Specific metrics" are the same for all 4 styles (see below).
OS/2 TypoAscender = 1600
OS/2 TypoDescender = -500
OS/2 TypoLineGap = 400
OS/2 WinAscent = 1900
OS/2 WinDescent = -600
hhea Ascender = 1900
hhea Descender = -600
hhea LineGap = 0
A screenshot of the regular and bold version at the same size :
I tried various settings in "Truetype Specific metrics" but none of them solve the issue. I don't know why the line gap calculated by wordpad is different for regular and bold despite that they have the same settings… Maybe you know…
Sorry for my english… I hope someone could help me !
