Stylistic Sets

Stylistic Set 01: (Mono/duo)spaced forms (kerning must also be disabled)
Stylistic Set 02: (A/de)scenders
Stylistic Set 03: Wider capitals
Stylistic Set 04: Boxy forms
Stylistic Set 05: Open counters
Stylistic Set 06: Shorter diacritic characters (experimental!)

The stylistic sets can be chained together so, for example, a wider, 
boxy C with open counters is available.

Drawing Quality

As good as it's gonna get. Every glyph ultimately inherits from a single component.

Tracking & Kerning

Very good.

Users can aslo easily apply additional kerning in increments of +−100 to 
achieve grid-perfect layouts.

Grid-Perfect Leading

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.

Leading Formula:
x = font size
y = desired number of dot spaces between lines
leading = x ÷ 10 × (y + 5)
Font Size Leading (0 dots) Leading (1 dot) Leading (2 dots) Leading (3 dots) Leading (4 dots)
