Re: CTRL-Select multiple Second Kern Pair Groups in OpenType Designer

Ah glad to see that I am not the only one who manual kerns even though there is auto kern in Font Creator program. I too would love to reduce the millions of manual kerning pairs that I seem to have to do even after running font with auto kern. See my post on being able to kern left and right with 3...

improvement to Manual Kern Left and Right at same time

Glad to see you keep improving the features. Still wish I could manual kern left and right at the same time instead of just two characters example A|Z|A instead of just Z|A as it is now and has been in the past versions, this would greatly speed up manual kerning. Had this feature in a drafting prog...

If you Have Kerning why do you need Metrics

Maybe I am overlooking the obvious, but if I have the ability to kern a font than what is the value of the metrics, figuring where the left and side bearing seems to be and issue for me when trying to get them in the right place to get the font to space characters properly.

Re: Can Fonts Be save as only a TTF font

Gerber Omega has a TTF Font Converter subprogram from within their main Omega program that should convert to what they call a softfont that is used in their program. It starts to install and then I get a error message "Can't Open Softfont". Within the Omega 5.0 program now is a Gerber Folder Locatio...
