I've just purchased the URW++ version of Baskerville, and I'm encountering a bizarre problem when using quotation marks. Oddly, the same problem seems to exist in ITC Baskerville — but not in other typefaces.
I've uploaded a screenshot to show what's happening. For some reason, the quotation marks in Baskerville have far too much space around them. I can't manually correct the problem by adjusting the tracking on the character, either.
Again, this is only happening in Baskerville, and I'm using a brand new version that I just purchased from Linotype.
Has anyone else encountered this problem, and if so, did you find a solution?
Can anyone suggest why the OpenTypes I'm generating in Fontographer 5 have sporadic spacing anomalies and the tracking occasionally goes way out. It looks like I've gone insane while kerning. This weirdness is only happening in .otf font files; the .ttf , Mac PostScript and Mac TrueTypes are all exactly as designed.
If I take my Fontographer-generated .ttf file into FontLab and generate .otf files, they have the correct spacing, the problem is only in Fontographer generated OpenTypes. Am I doing something stupid or has Fontographer 5 got a glitch?
Thanks in advance.
