Tall space below character

Hi - I’m creating a caps-only font and when I use it in Illustrator, there’s a tall space below the character. I’ve set descender height to 0. Is there something else I should be doing so this isn’t so tall? I must have some settings wrong.

Illustrator view:

Font Info:
Ascender 800
Cap Height 700
X height 500
Descender 0

You have probably some stray path in on of your glyphs.

any easy way to figure out which one? I’ve opened them all and don’t see any at a quick glance.

Try the mekkablue script Test > Report Highest and Lowest Glyphs or perhaps the plug-in Show Tops and Bottoms.

BRILLIANT! Thank you this worked perfectly and I found one letter with something -4500!
