    I am glad to remind all who voted for this feature that it is now possible to set a font size as x-height or cap height with Show Font Height Options toggle enabled in Character panel menu.


    Some issues still remain, yes, like, wrong size calculation if a font has rounded stems that end below baseline (https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/601447-illustrator-desktop-bugs/suggestions/44639661-font-height-options-misbehave-with-rounded-fonts), or inability to focus the dropdown with Tab (https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/601447-illustrator-desktop-bugs/suggestions/41836618-font-height-options-tab-order), or calculating font height by measuring glyphs instead of reading the actual value within the font (https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/601447-illustrator-desktop-bugs/suggestions/41615035-cap-height-setting-not-using-font-cap-height), but overall this is done, works, and super cool, don’t you think?

    When you type and than select a text/number on the screen to see the size, the measure box shows for example in "cm" the hight of the text. When you measure the same text/numbers after printing the result is a lot different (smaller) than the measurement on the screen showed. For example a number of 15cm is after printing only 9,4cm.

    Correct the size of the fonts in the navigator info box to the real size measurements as the print results.

    I use the Illustrator CC 2017.1.0 version, but also the C5 has this problem.

    Greatings,
