kerning לא עובד ב-word

Post by DP fonts »

אני עושה kerning בפונט, הוא עובד באדובי ובאופיס מצוין, חוץ מב-Word. יש לי גרסה 14!
I do kerning at Pont. It works in Adobe and in Office, but not in Word. I have version 14!

Unlike most other text processing software, in Word you need to explicitly enable kerning. Select the text, then open the Font dialog, go to the Advanced tab and enable Kerning.

נו, באמת.
אני מדבר על Kerning באופן-טייפ!
זה אמור להיות אוטומטי!

Complain to Microsoft. This setting of kerning being disabled by default has nothing to do with FontCreator.

Other apps disable kerning below a certain point-size.

אבל זה לא קורה רק אצלי. בכל פונט שתכנתתי אצלי, ה-kerning לא עובד אצל אף אחד.
כל מי ששלחתי לו את הפונט, אמר את זה.
But it doesn't just happen to me. In every font I programmed for me, the kerning doesn't work for anyone.
Everyone I sent the font to, said it.

Kerning in Word has to be enabled, as explained at the official Microsoft Office website:

Kern the characters that are above a particular size

Based on the fonts you have send us, it might be wise to first focus on left and right side-bearings (LSB and RSB).
