You can play around with the result here: (adjust the font size using the control on the right)

Thank you all for your help! I eventually found a good function that gives me almost exactly what I want: tracking = y = -0.01021241 + 0.3720623 * e ^ (-0.2808687 * x) where x = fontSize Details and attempts here:

y = 0.025 - (ln(x) * 0.01) actually gives pretty good results! Dang. Thanks! Thing is though that I need some specific values at specific points. Ended up with something slightly more complicated: (unfortunately) y = -0.01021241 + 0.3720623 * e ^ (-0.2808687 * x) Ugh, magic :–(

I'm not sure how to apply that to this problem. Essentially I'm looking for a function: fontSize -> [black box] -> tracking Where fontSize is a single number (like 16) and tracking is a fraction of an EM (e.g. 0.005; 1 EM = extreme of font's coordinate system.)

I don't know how to do that 😬

You're totally right in that it shouldn't be quadratic (the quadratic equation is what Wolfram Alpha's curve fitter thought was a best fit). In your suggestion, what is n? I'm not very good at math, BTW. (clearly)

Basically: - tracking (y) is a product of font size (x) - I'd like to base "zero" (no tracking) at font size = 12 (x=0) - Optimally things should taper off with no or little movement beyond x=30

Attempting to curve fit samples of font size + tracking values, hoping to come up with a function for dynamic text spacing, but am hitting my head against the wall. What I've got so far: Last equation is from 's quadratic fitter but it's clearly wrong. Plz help.

Also, can you verify that you've got "snap to pixel grid" enabled?

Sorry, we forgot to add "⇧" to those. So, you are totally right, it's shift-cmd-> and shift-cmd-< to change font size :–) We'll make sure to update this in the next release, and thank you for catching this.

Some upcoming improvements to the Inter UI font family. Mainly an improved "s" and slightly adjusted "a" for the bolder weights.

FWIW, they do load on iOS for me, but I have to scroll past them once (seem to load only once they get into view.)
