First of all apologies for any mistakes in this text (for example terms or wrong assunptions). I'm no typography expert. I just think changing a font should be possible. That's why I'm asking for information here.
So, I have the font Sofia Pro, which has problems. Both Regular and Medium. I don't know what is exactly the problem, but I think the baseline is too high.
When using the font (for example in my iOS app), it doesn't seem vertically aligned in the middle, it's too high.
Ö, etc., the top is cut off.
Opening the font in Apple Font Book, shows it like this (when selectinng text):
As you can see,
ABCD seems too high, as well as
yzåäö seem to be fine, but
ZÅÄÖ isn't even completely in the selection.
I also downloaded Font Forge, which shows me this:
So basically the same problem as Font Book.
First of all, what is the problem here? Should the baseline be lower? Will then letters such as
cdefg still be fine?
Or is the 'ascent' just not high enough?
Would fixing this be possible in Font Forge, or do you have other suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
