Stackable Font Issues

Hello Everyone,

I have been working on “Stackable fonts” recently. They work wonderfully when they are not contained within a text box in Illustrator. However, when I try stacking text areas I can’t seem to get things to line up vertically. I almost always have to bump the lighter layers down a few pixels. They all seem to line up in Glyphs. Am I missing something?

Here is a screenshot of what I mean: ?dl=0

Here is the font file:


Please read ‘Raise or lower the first baseline in a text area’ (scroll down a little):

By default, AI measures the height of your lowercase d to position the first baseline. If you want to stack text, it is better to set it to something else.
