I’ve re-read through the Vertical Metric Tutorial again today and found that the calculation of the vertical metric is quite different than what I read a few years back. So, I’d like to make sure I understand correctly and catch up with the new way of doing things. If you guys can have a quick look and let me know, I’d appreciate it very much.
I used the “mekkablue report highest and lowest script” and the highest is 970, and the lowest is -230.
So I’m trying to apply this to the Web Strategy Vertical Metric on the tutorial:
winAscent= vertical maximum round this value up = 970 (Does the vertical maximum mean the highest point of glyphs?)
winDescent= vertical minimum (positive value) round this value up = 230 (Does the vertical minimum means the lowest point of glyphs)
hheaAscender= 970 (Is it ok to use the same amount as the winDescent if I’d like to keep glyphs such as “lacute” and “hcircumflex”.
hheaDescender= 230 (the lowest point is the descender of y)
hheaLineGap@ 20% of typoAscender (970) + typoDescender (230) = 240
Font Info > Font > Custom Parameters:
Use Typo Metrics= yes
Also, I’m trying to run the script “Vertical Metrics Manager”, but there was nothing happen. No Macro window popped up or anything. Not sure what I did wrong.
