When I use certain typefaces InDesign, in this case Roboto, the typeface auto adds spacing at the top inside the text box. This makes it difficult to align it perfectly with other objects. Is there some way to make this typeface always remove this spacing? (See image below) I know there are temporary workarounds, but I'd rather not have to do that every time I use the typeface, it can also be inaccurate that way.
This is an InDesign text frame with Roboto as the font. The character R is not the same as in the question, and the two dots are rounded.
- Select the first paragraph and verify there is no character style applied
- Go to Menu Type > Show Hidden Characters to check there are no invisible characters with different specifications from the text
- Is it a Roboto font downloaded from the internet? Google font?
For this reason I almost always set my text frame to offset by the Cap Height. The text starts at the margin and when I need to centre type in a frame it centres better, especially if it is in ALL CAPS.
