Please Add a Way to Select which Character to Auto Kern

Post by RickDe »

It took me a while to figure out that you can do these three:
- If you have existing Kern tables you can use Auto Kern inside OpenType Designer to regenerate them.
- You can export Kerning tables from an existing Font and use them in another by importing them, then using Auto Kern
- You can make a backup of the Font, then delete the characters you only want to use autokern for. Run Autokern and then readd the characters.


There is no easy way for people without a lot of experience with FontCreator to be able to control AutoKern more. The Popups for selecting characters already exists in Font creator, it seems not too difficult to add this to AutoKern. Would make things much easier for new users.

Yes, that would be great to allow more control of what set of glyphs should be kerned. We have added this request to our to-do list.
