typoaid – Macros for font diagnostics

This pack­age pro­vides macros for mea­sur­ing al­pha­bet lengths (i.e. the length oc­cu­pied by the char­ac­ters “abcd…xyz”), em-widths and ex-heights, which may help in mak­ing type­set­ting de­ci­sions.

The pack­age is com­pat­i­ble with pdf, Lua, and XeLaTeX, and will ac­cept font fam­ily switches de­fined via the fontspec pack­age.

The plan is that fu­ture ver­sions shall be able to pro­vide even more di­ag­nos­tic tools, and some Lua-spe­cific spe­cial com­mands, too.

The pack­age re­lies on the fol­low­ing other pack­ages: ex­pl3, ar­ray, book­tabs, and siu­nitx.
