Help with setting cap height

Hello!

I’m still working on my penguin font :slight_smile:

It’s unicase and very tall- there are no ascenders or descenders. I’m not sure how big to set the cap height or descender height. Given the height, the accents end up high over the character.

Could you look at the screenshot and see if the letter heights need to be adjusted? Will there be problems with such a tall font?

Thanks so much!

I am afraid I cannot spare you some reading:

…and test runs in the intended usage environment. If it appears too tall, you can adjust your vertical metrics and the UPM. Consider the Scale to UPM custom parameter.

Thanks!
