FL changes metrics

Toby's picture

How can I stop FL from changing my metrics when generating a font? For example, it changes my
x-height to the overshoot y-coordinate. It turns out correct if I import the generated metrics file into FL, though.

Tobias,

which FontLab? Which system? And most importantly, which font format?

Sorry; FL 4.5, Mac OS 10.2.2, Postscript Type 1

Hm... Can you please contact FontLab support (http://www.pyrus.com/Font-tools/FontLab-Product-Support/FontLab-Problem-Report/ ) and include a sample file (both generated and VFB) in one ZIP file. Tell us which exactly value you expect to get and which one you get.

Also, is there a reason why you don't use FontLab 4.6 (which is a free update from 4.5)? You can get it at http://www.pyrus.com/Font-tools/Product-Updates-and-Upgrades/

Thanks,
Adam
