I'm currently work on text, which intented to be read on screen. For that reason, body text should be quite large, 15-16 points.
I use both InDesign CS6 and Word 2016 for this project.
As I discovered, at some specific sizes, serifed OpenType fonts looks different in InDesign and Word. I don't understand why. (Any help is welcome).
I tested with Adobe Minion Pro, Adobe Arno Pro, Adobe Garamond Premiere Pro and Monotype Times New Roman (the last is TTF, shipped with Windows).
Picture 1: InDesign CS6. Top - Minion Pro, bottom - Times New Roman. There are no problems here, both fonts looks good in all sizes.
Picture 2: Word 2016 (or recent LibreOffice Writer, no difference). Top - Minion Pro, bottom - Times New Roman. As you can see, at 16 points Minion dramatically increases it's thickness.
Summary: TTF fonts - looks good at all sizes. OTF fonts - increases it's thickness at 16 points and above.
Why I have such unpleasant look in Word and LibreOffice? How I could fix it?
