Summary0000498: Typography Preference Settings as part of Paragraph Styles
DescriptionSuperscripts, subscripts and small caps are ruled by the Edit>Preference>General>Typography menu. These settings apply indistinctively to all fonts in the document. Although it has been years DTP programs have worked this way, I think this approach needs improvement and should be ruled through the Edit>Paragraph Style menu, thus beeing possibly different for each font, because each font is different.
Additional InformationWhat fits for Garamond doesn’t necessarily fit for Helveltica. There are so many differences from one font another that even a settings driven by a percentage doesn’t give good results for both. I agree this is real fine tuning. A check box ”Apply to all fonts” could be a compromise if you don’t want to use the feature to its full extent. Otherwise, the settings would be user definable in the Paragraph Style menu.
TagsNo tags attached.

I'd like to have all this metrics related stuff in a
per-font customization tab. It would include:
* sub/superscript pos
* smallcaps ratio
* underline and strikethru pos
* strokewidth
* manual kerning pairs
* hor. and vert. scale
* extra leading
* extra tracking

A customized font would be a new font, different from the original one.

This sounds good, but I think further changes should still be possible in each style and/or at least manually on a case-by-case basis, especially for sub/superscripts.
