Accented Characters outside Text Frame


Recommended Posts

Probably adjust the Base Line under the Character Panel.

I would use the Text Frame and adjust the top inset, this is with 36 point type and so smaller type smaller offset.

Thank you both for this answer, but it is not what I am looking for. In InDesign it is done by default, depended of the typeface used. In both suggestions the distances would differ between the different typefaces and needs calculating the moment the typeface change. Is there not a way AP does this also by default?

Actually Indesign has the accent of a capital letter partially out of the text frame.

Looks like the image from:

It depends on the font metrics as to if and/or how much accented characters and or say a script font sticks up out of a frame.

can someone please tell me where I can find the option that my accented characters stay inside the text frame?

Have you tried turning on the text frame's Align to Baseline option?

firstdefence and MikeW:

That is true, but the same typeface in InDesign CS5 gives me the result you can see in the enclosed screenshot. As you can see the accents are a small bit above the text frame. That is were I am after.

 

Old Bruce:

Thanks, that is a good thought, but that gives me a lot of other problems. The size of the characters is in this example 72pt. When I use the baseline grid as you suggest, it has to be 21pt otherwise the accentends are still outside the textframe. 21pt for regular typesetting in a book is to much. I could also define a startposition at the top of the textframe, unfortunatly that does not work. If my grid is 10pt (most average that I use), the start position can go to 18pt and the accents are still outside the textframe.

 

I am not sure if there is a (for me) good working solution at this point in the development of Publisher, but I keep hope.

Hi @MikeW Yes I made that post because I wanted to find out how the inDesigners would handle the issue and the suggestions they would come up with. Never hurts to get opinions from different sources ;)

What is your leading for the 72 pt example.

What I do is use exact leading not default or %. I find it gives me more control over the location of ascenders/descenders.

Is this a Paragraph decoration or a headline style? More information about the context would help us more.

The leading is on default, I have the idea – but correct me if I an wrong – default gives me the leading that is built in in the typeface.

I am testing the vertical metrics of a new typeface and noticed that in Publisher nothing changed, while in InDesign the characters did what I was after. I like to have that result also i Publisher, but maybe that is not possible yet.

Could you mention the font name and provide an ID file or idml of your example?

The name of the font Typist, but is at this moment in development, so not yet available for the market. That is why I am busy testing in several programmas. I do not mind submit an ID file or idml file but that does not make sense without the font i guess.

I don't know if you intended humour but thank you for my morning laugh.

Context is key so thanks for the heads up about the font.

I must reiterate that you may want to use exact leading simply because every application's default is going to be different.

Yep, no sense without the font. I too develop fonts. To resolve certain issues in applications, I have provided test copies to different software makers, including @Dave Harris at Serif. Do consider that route.

But, fwiw, Adobe applications do things with fonts other software companies do not / cannot do because they bypass the OS font subsystem to read fonts, including the metrics, and "make up" their own values. So it may be that the OS is passing the winAssent and/or the TypoAscender value (don't know which or both Serif is using) and deciding the baseline calculation position based on that.

Oh, this is great, thank you! Nice to know more font developers are on this forum.

I will ask Dave Harris how Serif handles these issues around the metrics values. This is of great help, thank you!

I too would like a detailed explanation on that.

It appears that Affinity is using the metrics as designed in the font.
Which means if Use Typo Metrics is Off, they use the Win metrics on Windows and the Mac metrics on Mac.
If Use Typo Metrics is On, they use the Typo metrics.

If I remember correctly InDesign uses the Typo metrics regardless of the settings in the font.

It would be really nice to know exactly how this is done in APub.

Sorry, what do you mean?

Didn't you said "so not yet available for the market", thus I wonder there are overall some initial typefaces under that "Typist" name available for download.

Hah! Even if we were to meet in real life, I probably would always refer to you as Old Bruce. Dunno if there are that many people who are named that...

BruceWayne, BruceWillis, BruceLee, OldBruce, well somehow makes a difference to me. - Further if one and the same fontnames are used for different font families, it's pretty hard to differentiate among those without some additional key differentiator. ;-)
