New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I don't know if this is a Additional Vertical metrics matters or some other factor I haven't considered.
I've been extending one of my fonts and adding glyphs with double storey accents like Latin Capital O with circumflex and tilde.
When testing the font in InDesign with auto leading I've noticed that some accents collide
Is it normal to have accent touching like this?
Should I adjust the Additional vertical Metrics, or something else to stop this happening?
Is it acceptable to have this occur with double storey accents?
I have set the Additional Vertical metrics like this:
1. WinAscent value is the height of the highest point in the font, so this height will cover all the double storey accent.
2. WinDescent is the level that will include all the accents below.
3. Ascender = WinAscent and Descender = WinDeccent
4. TypoLineGap = WinAscent + WinDescent - UPM (1000)
5. Line Gap = 0
