Top or Bottom of Font Cut off

May 05, 2011 at 01:10

Recently, I few of the fonts I've downloaded have the tops or bottoms cut off. Am I being silly or is there a solution?

No, you are not silly and yes there is a solution.

Indy Pimp is the top.

Callie Hand is the bottom (the letter G,J,Y,Z,p,q,y & z).

A nowadays more and more common font creation error, incorrect ascender and decender settings. There is a one-click solution for those designers who care to read the manual.

If this is an incorrect ascender or descender problem (don't know, didn't installed the font), you should contact the author of the font to make him aware of this problem.

Can't reproduce it with Cally Hand. But then, I'm no apple. What is clearly wrong, however, is the decender, set at -250 while the tails go to -405. Win Decent is set correct at -421. Win Ascent is also set correctly at 535 but, again completely wrong for the ascender: 750!

Also Indy Pimp is clearly a designers fault. The ascender settings are a total mess.

Hi there! Please excuse my ignorance, this was my first font to make...learning as I go...
I reuploaded it, but it may take a while til they get it up for the public.

Please email me if the problem is still there...

Before you publish a font at least check the metrics.

Format > Settings > Metrics > Calculate.
You might also want to take the trouble to read the help pdf so that you understand what you are doing. To prevent that you ever again publish a mess like this.
