    I love this app and use it often, but this is my biggest qualm with Sketch. The line-height bug drives me nuts.

      100% agreed. Thought I was losing my mind for a while until I found that everyone else seemed to have the same issue.

        The fix is to open the typeface that has the issue in Glyphs or Glyphs Mini and save it as a new version and then replace the old font. (remember to take a backup). It fixes the issue, but it's probably against the fonts license.

    This wasn't the reason I stopped using Sketch, but it convinced me to continue waiting to try it again. The web is 90% typography. Getting type control right should be one of the biggest priorities for Sketch.

    Main reason why I haven't used it more. Also the lack of paragraph options really slow down work flow; no top or bottom margins and lack of indentation means that you use a lot of text boxes when ideally one would be enough.

    Type is just so integral to design it saddens me that they have still got it so wrong.

    TLDR version

    How Sketch Handles Type? Poorly.

    For a long time I was thinking Sketch is designed to handle type poorly to simulate CSS, because CSS’s line height calculation also drives me nuts

    AMEN. And this is really a shame, because content is king.

    Also, if your text has OpenType features applied, they are removed when changing text size.
