Summary0000164: Extra Line Spacing on Export to TTF V 3.22.1
DescriptionI imported a font, made some edits, exported it and installed it on my computer. The new font has additional spacing above and below the text when used in Word.
Steps To Reproduce1) Download the Montserrat .ttf font file
2) Open the .ttf file in BirdFont and make a change (ex: added a downward slope for the number "1").
3) Export the font.
4) Install the font by dragging the .ttf file into the Font section of the Control Panel.
5) Open Microsoft Word and enter some text in the newly created font.
6) Make sure the line spacing for Before and After are set to 0 and notice that there's still a lot of space above and below the lines.
Additional Informationdid not adjust any the Bid Font settings, simply made the changes and exported as a new font
TagsNo tags attached.

I have begun debugging this issue. I have not found a solution yet but I can conclude that it is a fairly strange True Type font.

Thanks for looking into this so quickly. I will take your word that the Montserrat is an unusual font.

Hi. I have not found a solution to the problem. A workaround might be to manually set a new height with the vertical guides. See the attached screenshot.
