So I am working on an illustrator file that is only 6 month old. I went to change the phone number but the numbers are turning out different and I dont know what has changed to cause this. I have the two examples in the photo. The 9 and 2. Left 9 is the origional and the right 9 is what happens when I type now. It is the same with the number 2. Left 2 is orgional and right 2 is what shows up now. Also tried the number 6 and it shows up taller then the rest of the numbers. All font settings show up the same. By chance does anyone know what is happening and how to fix?
Can you check the setting for Figure in the OpenType panel?
It is set to Default Figure.
Those are old style figures. You want normal ones
Would I set it to "Tabular Lining" or Proportional Lining?
The Lining is about the horizontal spacing of the letters when you type them. For a business card you want it proportional. For a business report you want it tabular.
