Any ideas would be appreciated.
You will find the line spacing really tight compared to the defaults. Try it before changing the line spacing. It is not the same as the ones on the PW which uses a custom style sheet.

You will find both Caecilia's versions you extracted to be identical to each other. Even though it says condensed it's not.

What I did was add weight to mine I started with the default 25/20 weight on Font Creator.

I then made a scaled down condensed version to try to match the default but finally gave up. It's near impossible. 5% was too small. I think I settled on 8% but I can't confirm that.

Most of my fonts are 35/30 weight on Regular and Italic. 15/10 on Bold and Bold Italic (or none at all depending on how bold they were in the first place)
