    First-time/self-taught question…

    I reduced the cap-height and descender measurements from the original established in my file, redrew characters accordingly.

    When I test install and compare against other fonts using same size and line spacing, the line spacing of mine appears very generous.

    Should I be adjusting/entering cap height and descender values elsewhere to properly reflect the changes?

    Hi Josh

    The metrics settings in the font info panel are always related to the units per em value. If you did not change the value of units per em then the line space will increase.

    The ascender and descender value should match up with the units per em value, depending your design off course.

    good luck!
