I have some auto width text boxes and I noticed that the height of the box changed depending on what letters where in it. In the attached picture you can see this is a problem since the buttons share exactly the same type face, type size, leading and padding but still get different heights. The characters used should not impact the height of the box.
So far I have only encountered it with lower case j in the font Barlow so maybe it is the font file that is corrupted.
Thank you for reporting the issue and sharing your investigation. I would request you to please try with other fonts and see if it's happening with other fonts as well.
We will try our best to help you.
I haven't seen it in any other typeface or size. But it also only happens when the text box is set to auto width.
So the specifics are:
It may be an error in the font but I wanted to let you know that this problem can occur.
Thanks for highlighting. I will make sure to highlight this with my team so that we can investigate it and will share the updates with you.
