Academico baseline

By alternating between italic and regular font in Academico, the baseline changes.
I would cassify it as a bug…

is there a reason for this and a possible workaround?

This appears to be the result of how Academico is coded; I reproduced what you are seeing in Affinity Publisher. I noticed that with Academico 12pt regular selected, the default leading is 12pt, but when I change to Italic (still size 12), the default leading changes to 14.8.

Here’s an updated set of Academico with this problem fixed. (152 KB)

Can confirm the fix! Is that service or what?

Thanks, Daniel. (Lovely font, btw.)
