Hi, I created a font a while back that’s been working great in our InDesign compositions. Beautiful spacing and kerning, and everything looks great on output. Thanks for a great application, especially the Smart Spacing and Kerning tools. Awesome!
In the initial font I didn’t include any accented glyphs and it’s time now to do that. I created all the glyphs and imported them using the exact same Ascender, capHeight, xHeight, Baseline, and Descender guides, and successfully created kerning groups to duplicate spacing for similar glyphs (e for é, etc.). All good. They look great in InDesign and everything works as it should.
However! On export to fixed-layout epub from InDesign, the baseline shifts downward pretty dramatically, even though it displays correctly in InDesign. It’s not a huge issue with text blocks with large amounts of text, but when we have a small, formatted text box (a button, for example), it is a big problem, especially on two-line buttons.
In the attached image, the text frames (the buttons) specify a vertical alignment that centers the text in the button from top to bottom. The image shows a screenshot with the InDesign display on the left and the Epub preview on the right. The downward shift on the right is clearly visible especially the two-line Battery & Adaptor button.
The old font (before adding accented glyphs), shifted a little, but not nearly as much so it was not a deal-breaker. With the new font it definitely is a deal-breaker. I can’t figure out how to fix this, or if it’s even possible to fix… Any advice to help me solve this would be appreciated!
