Show kerning in sample window

Post by Carmody » Fri Feb 15, 2008 8:32 pm

In the sample window you can add some text to see how it looks. It would be an improvement if the sample text is displayed with kerning on, if the font has kerning pairs of course. I hope this feature can be added because unfortunately MainType is not very friendly towards kerning. Right now you can only see how many kerning pairs a font has, while a lot of other programs show all kerning pairs in a separate window.

For example?

I wonder how useful it would be unless one could edit the kerning pairs? FontCreator can do this.

In FontExpert 2007 they have a sample window with kerning feature, but overall I like MainType more.

I'd like to second Carmodys request.
Improved kerning info would be useful. I also would appreciate being able to add a kerning pairs (number of) column in the preview window.

Any chance of this happening, Erwin?
