Leading adjustment in an all caps font

Freems's picture

I am using FontLab Studio 5.
I am building an OT font that is all caps. My client requests that I have leading be 1" from baseline to baseline when set at 70pts. I figured that would be about 70/72. In fontlab I have tried countless ways to do this in the custom values with no change. The only value I am working with is the caps height which is 706 as there are no descenders, ascenders or lower case glyphs in the font.

any insight/help is appreciated!!

Set the em to the cap height and go from there. So, if the em is 1000, make it 706, or so.
