Tracking & Kerning
As good as it's gonna get. Every glyph ultimately inherits from a single component.
Users can aslo easily apply additional kerning in increments of +−100 to
achieve grid-perfect layouts.
Divide Adobe's auto leading in half for one dot size between lines or refer
to the leading formula and table below for more specific adjustment.
x = font size
y = desired number of dot spaces between lines
leading = x ÷ 10 × (y + 5)
||Leading (0 dots)
||Leading (1 dot)
||Leading (2 dots)
||Leading (3 dots)
||Leading (4 dots)
Autohinted w/ no plan to go manual.
