I’m working on a small project and we’re comparing different icon font families before we choose one.
I’m looking at the Icons8 Material set, and I’ve noticed that unlike Google’s Material icons, the Icons8 glyphs are tall rectangles, not square. We are likely going to mix and match with official Google icons, so we need to have the glyphs the same size.
So my question is: Is there a way to specify square glyph dimensions when generating the icon font?
Attached is a screenshot showing a test screen comparing FontAwesome 4 and 5 (with the fixed width option), Google Material, and Icons8 Material. The dotted line shows the glyph boundaries - there’s no internal padding or margin.
