I have set my x-height at 500 en UPM at 1000. But compared to other fonts, my font is much bigger. Is there a logical explanation for this issue? I would like to keep some proportions with other fonts.
Fonts are different. Which fonts did you compare it to? My impression is that most Latin fonts have an x-height around half the em (500).
But you aren’t mit forced to use 500. Feel free to change the number. Or change the UPM to something higher. This will effectively scale down your font.
Thanks for your reply. I’ve compared my font to Adobe Garamond, Bembo Book, Minion, Baskerville & Plantin Pro.
I’m making a revival of a 16th century font. Changing the UPM does work. Thanks! Is it best to do this after the design process, or can I do that during the process?
