    Not sure if this is a bug. But the Default values of the underline fields in the postscript dimension settings in font info are zero? So the underline will be on the baseline with a thickness of zero. Shouldn’t the Default Values be something generic?
    Cheers, Jo

    as Tal stated in the ufo2fdk source code

    # fallback to None on these
    # as the user should be in
    # complete control

    I see and somehow understand it.
    But since InDesign does not show any underline with the default settings it should be more obvious that these values have to be changed?

    Thanks, jo

    you could set a observer when a font opens / when a fonts will generate a binary and set the value as you wish, this means it kinda atomically.

    good luck
