Text is cropped by text box - especially italic?

Is something not working like it should? Let us know.

Hi, Pro is really lovely by the way - very impressed with all the swishness!
I have a problem with the text though, especially noticeable with italic text, and especially noticeable on the left hand side of the text.
Take a lower case and italic g for example - the bottom tail of the g is cropped out of sight because it runs out past the bounds of the text editing area.

I'm having the same problem with the font "SignPainter HouseScript". If I convert the text into a shape, the text is rendered correctly. Not when converted directly into pixels, though.

This is a known (and tricky to fix) issue with certain fonts – as a workaround, you should be able to create bounded text boxes rather than free ones to avoid clipping in most cases I'm aware of. You can find a little more on that here:
