    Space above first line of text despite fitting frame to content




      I have come across a problem with the font we use for our company collateral: Titillium Web.


      When I add a text box, there is space above the first line even when I fit the frame to content. Other fonts behave normally and I do not have any problems with this particular font in Illustrator. I have tried with existing and new documents.


      Our textboxes often appear as white boxes on a colour background, so the copy always looks a bit off centre. At the moment the workaround is to increase the baseline shift by 2pt, but that's not really feasible if we have to do it for every text box in every document.


      Any ideas whether this is a bug or if there is another workaround? Should I set the preset to include the baseline shift or is there a better way?
