Summary0000136: Oversized Cursor
DescriptionAfter installing the cursor/type marker is huge. This doesn't effect the leading or how the typeface works but I can't figure out why this is happening. See attached image.

The size can be adjusted with the red guides, top and bottom margin.

This doesn't seem to be the issue. My Red guides are pretty close to each letter. The line height and auto leading are perfect but the cursor/bounding box for the type is huge.

Can you send me the font in bf and ttf formats for debugging?

The font's not complete yet but if you save it out as .ttf and try to use it you'll see what I mean.

Appreciate the help!

Nice font. I like it!

I have found out that you have an exclamation mark far down at the right in some of the glyphs. This should cause the line height to increase. I have removed them and the caret should hopefully be back to normal again. The button to show the entire glyph has the label F in the Birdfont UI. See the attached image.
