  • Re: Units per em

    The problem you can run into drawing is that the vector angles are also constrained by the unit density.  This can cause undue distortion on details in the drawing.  This may not be a problem for the average font in a situation but when you approach extremes of weight and detail, things can get ugly. Choose UPM on the targeted function of the face.
    That's precisely why I wondered if a higher density is more advantageous, particularly in the case of MM interpolation because the distortion (at least when the resultant points are rounded to the nearest integer location) would be lessened.

    Congrats to whomever gets this! It sounds like a great opportunity. I wish I was in a position to apply. Maybe someday...
