Publisher - Upper Case letters on perticular font are higher than lower case (not happening in Designer)


Recommended Posts

Hiya, 

I'm new to Affinity and trying to work out why this is happening to a font I've used before in other softwares.

The font is Inter, and by default the uppercase letters are appearing above the lowercase. I can individually edit the uppercase letters down by 2pts but doing manually is a bit silly...

Anyone have any idea why this could be happening and how to fix it?

The issue does not occur in Designer.

 

any help much appreciated! thanks

Welcome to the forums @Akoda

Put your text caret in the text to the right of the letter "o" and use the keyboard's arrow key to advance it to the left one letter at a time. check the values for these areas.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

What OS do you use?

Is the font one you installed (and if so, from where) or did it come with your system (or with some other application)?

All the numbers are the same across the text except a few have a slight variation on the Kerning...

Kerning variations are to be expected. I would think it may be something to do with the font, Inter. I don't have that font so I am sorry I can't offer any other help off the top of my head.

It's just happening in the file im working in... so maybe i've done something. 

If you feel like sharing that document (or part of it) we may be able to tell you what happened.

Or if you create it in a new test document, feel free to share.

I don't see that issue with Inter after installing it on my system, so it's probably some setting we haven't thought of that's causing it in your document.

It's downloaded from here,

I've used it before a lot in the past with Indesign, photoshop, Fusion, AFX and other softwares with no issues.

https://rsms.me/inter/

FWIW, that source includes variable font versions in the Inter Variable folder, which Affinity does not support. Installing the variable fonts as well as the static ones could cause problems with the Affinity apps.
