    Text as mak on embed font

    fryckoort
      Hi everyone,
      I have a question regarding Masks
      When I try to overlay two strings of text that have the exact same charachterisics (Font size, police, etc...) They appear to merge. But whenever I use the below text as a Mask on a rectangle, there seems to be a slight mismatch: they don't merge anymore.
      It looks like the mask is modifying the police.
      Would you have any information about this please?
      Thanks a lot.

      PS: It seems to happen only with embeds fonts, since I've tryed with devices font and it worrks

          I think that the text objects have properties like pixelperfect that might
          help.
