I've had this issue for a long time but I've just never got round to trying to fix it. Basically on a single line text element (so not a text box), the bounding box that surronds the text seems to not be in-line with the bottom of actual text. I have tried playing with the line height but as you can see that doesn't seem to make a difference.
Any help please?
Do you see the problem (and the solution) ?
Sorry no? Could you clarify please? If you are implying it is because the line height is set to 24pt then that is not the case. Shows the same bounding box when set to 'Auto' or 0.1.
Could you please explain
My mistake. I thought it was the baseline shift.
Have you tried another font? Is the behaviour the same?
Do you have a sreenshot with show hidden characters [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[I] enabled ?
Ah that might be it then, hadn't thought it was actually font dependant. Tried it with 3 other fonts and got the same issue with 2 of them but the spacing was just less extreme, but one of them was completely normal. Interesting.
Obvious, but I'll ask anyway, is there a return at the end of the line?
Could it be that your font SF Pro Display does have a long long "g", "p", "j", "q", "y" ???
I think that's it. Those letters seem to fill the box on the other fonts I tested but not the SF Pro one. There must be another character within the font set that is making the box that large.
Thanks for your help!
