Photoshop | SourceSansPro | The letter "i"

Posted on 2014-03-27
Last Modified: 2014-03-27

I have downloaded a font called SourceSansPro and I am using it on my Photoshop CS5.

Why does the letter "i" shows sometimes as caps even when it is in the middle of the word?

Note: Sometimes it doesn't.

Where did you download it from?

Are you 100% sure it is not your own fat finger?

haha it's not my finger.

It is that font downloaded from

When the font is small the "i" and "I" look just the same!

Look at the example.

Thanks anyways!

That's because the space between the dot and the body becomes hard to see.
It's still a small i.

Are you manipulating anything in photoshop?  What happens when you use the font in your word processor?  Also if you have Illustrator it will do a better job with fonts than photoshop.  You can still "save for web" or an image.  But I do find type comes out better.
