Below is a screenshot of two zoomed-in PDFs, both exported from the same Dorico file. The one on the left was exported from a Mac, the one on the right was exported from a PC. Same fonts. Both exported as PDF graphic.
The one on the left has a baseline of 55 points from the top of the page (which is what it should be), and the one on the right has a baseline of 57.5 points.
I’ve spent the entire evening trying to figure out why my titles weren’t lining up… I thought it was an InDesign user error. Turns out some of the PDFs I was using were exported on my PC, and the others were exported on the Mac.
The disaster is that I’m on a print deadline, and I have some 350 PDFs to place in InDesign… some exported from PC, some from Mac, with two different baselines. And my editor (who’s using the Mac) can’t export the updated PDFs to match mine (on the PC).
In the interim, I’m just going to re-export everything from one machine, but I would very much like to figure out why this happened. If anyone can help, here’s the file.
