Kerning not working in Word preview

Post by Jonne Haven » Sun May 28, 2017 12:34 pm

I have submitted one of my fonts to My Font review and am afraid it will get rejected because one of their requirements is that my font show up properly in the font selection window. Now I don't know if it's a problem of FontCreator or just Word. As per the pic below you can see that my font's names do not kern in Word 2010 nor in the latest Word 365.

Is there something that can be done within FontCreator to remedy this that I'm missing?

I'm fully capable of accepting that this is Word problem and not FontCreator's but I'm going out on a limb hoping there's something I can do about this.

Thanks ahead of time.

Blessings,

Jonne

For what it's worth the same issue applies to Adobe Illustrator.

I don't think the font selection combo boxes kern text, so I shouldn't worry about this.

That will be a proud moment, an unexpected one, there are so many great fonts out there, it's intimidating. But I'll certainly be bragging if it is accepted! Haha.
