Problems with ascender/descender space

I made this font a really long time ago on a much older version of Glyphs. I’m having some problems after exporting it. There’s a ton of space at the bottom or the top when I select the letters.

Not sure where i’ve gone wrong. Any help would be appreciated.

Try using Vertical Metrics Manager from the mekkablue scripts (available in the Plugin Manager).

And read this: Vertical metrics | Glyphs

I assume you’re talking about an Adobe app. Adobe apps take the lowest and highest point in the font for determining the selection rectangles. There are test scripts for finding the lowest and highest glyphs.

This worked! Thank you so much. There was an errant point in my degree glyph.

For anyone who finds this later. I installed the mekkablue script library and used “test > Report Highest and Lowest Glyphs.”
