There is a slight baseline & kerning shift in MICR document

We recently purchased one of your MICR E13 Fonts to replace our outdated postscript MICR typeface. We have hundreds (perhaps thousands) of legacy documents where we will be swapping this in. When we replace the font there is a slight baseline and kerning shift in our documents. Is there anything we or you can do to account for that? image

These adjustments with the font itself are only made via the horizontal placement, spacing between characters, and font density as the height of the fonts is specifically created from strict ANSI and ISO specifications to meet ABA banking standards. There is information here: MICR Troubleshooting regarding adjustments you can make with the font itself. There are also 24 additional MICR fonts at various widths and intensities supplied with your package. You can also adjust the point size of the font incrementally as long as the font size still passes testing.

Vertical Baseline / Kerning Shift is unlikely to be resolved with font adjustments alone as those are an effect of the application you are using itself and adjustments vertically would normally be required to be made with the application. Each application should have options for adjusting fonts with respect to the baseline, but those are not a function of the font itself. You may also want to consider line spacing adjustments in the application to add or remove white space above or below the font to try to correct any vertical baseline shifting.
