    Myriad Pro Black that has been squished. It is not Myriad Pro Black Condensed.

    I said what I said....

    It is NOT the Condensed version of Myriad Black (Myriad Black Condensed), but rather it is the "non-condensed" version of Myriad Black that has subsequently been squished.

    OH OK! I didn't use the condensed. I used just black and squished it myself.
    That's why it fit so well. Thanks.

    Yeah that's the B TCH about condensed. Typographers do not JUST reduce the character width. They change the whole stroke / width thing. And when computer operators who are not designers SQUISH them - reduce the width against the height...well that is just crap.

    There was a dude on this board from SD years ago who cautioned about distorting type. Ever since then I have made a cautious effort to not effect the type outside the original proportions.

    I am sure it does not matter - except to purists who have studied typography.
