I built out some shapes to test out a font icon idea.
I drew them in Illustrator. I set my art-board to pt at 1000 x 1000.
I filled the objects and moved the ruler so that 0 was the baseline.
From Font Lab studio, I went to file > font-setup > Metrics and Dimentions: I have changed the Ascender, x height, and caps height all to 1000 and the descender to 0. I'm just making shapes so I figured I didn't need to deal with those. >Apply -
So then I copy and paste from Illustrator to Font Lab.
The glyph seems to be placed properly - except that it is about 1000 pt below where it should be.
To trouble shoot, I fooled around with all of the numbers in the Font Lab key dimentions again and I moved the baseline in Illustrator all over the place to see if I could get a change to happen. I could not. Here is a picture. Any help would be great!
In illustrator: base at zero.
In Fontlab: base at -1000 basically.
