Summary0000130: Wrong line height
DescriptionRegardless of top and bottom margin position, the line height seems to be wrong and always is the same. For this setup (and any setup):

I get this line height:

This example is 48/48pt. As you can see, the top of capitals of first line are off canvas, and the ascenders of second line are over descenders of first line (at 48/48pt they must be in touch, not mounted).
TagsNo tags attached.

Thank you for the report. Which text editor are you using? Does this happen with all programs?

Yes, all programs. The screen capture is Apple Text Edit, but it happens also in InDesign. For example, this screen capture is from InDesign page:

And the paragraph settings must be 8/16pt (double line height than body size) for a right display.

I'm not sure if this is a bug or maybe something I am doing wrong...

This might be a Mac issue. It does not happen on the computer I am using right now but I will test it on Mac as soon as possible. When things work should the red guides (bottom and top margin) mark the place where the rendering program will cut.

I guess the issue is solved. Drop me a note if I am wrong.

How can I test it? downloding Birdfont again?

I apologize, I thought the red guides did solve the problem. I will try to reproduce this on Mac as soon as possible.
