Add Adjustment for Line-spacing to Metrics Tab

Post by Bhikkhu Pesala »

A spin-wheel and/or slider on the Font Properties Metrics dialog could perhaps be linked to Line Gap and Typo Line Gap. Set the default line-spacing in % or font size. Here is a mock-up:

Even though the request is still valid, you need to be aware that the screenshot is from an older version of FontCreator.

Some people use Excel to calculate the font metrics, and some just accept the values calculated by FontCreator, while others adjust them during the design of a font.
